Mujh Se Bichad ke (Ghazal) - Cover by N V Krishnan

Lyrics & Chords

Another cover of a Jagjit Ji’s Ghazal …. This one is from the Album “Saher”. Two days ago I was in a mood to sing a ghazal and saw the karaoke track of this number… Though I was not too familiar with this ghazal, decided to learn and sing… Started in the after noon and completed the recording in an hour or so…. After a few of corrections here and there I completed the mixing the next day morning…In short it is a cover done in a few hours time…Please listen and give your views….

Hope you will like my attempt….

Album: SAHER
Lyrics: Dr. Bashir Badr
Composed and Originally Sung by: Jagjit Singh
Covered by : N V Krishnan

NVK Sir – Great singing with details !your voice sounds so soothing as usual ! who is the lyricist for this song ?Any idea??!! Surprising Lyrics !!


Kumar Srinivasan Pro user said

Nice one NVKji. It was a very good delivery for a few hours of effort. Clarity of lower registers could be better in a few spots I felt.

Latha…Sorry to have missed to mention the name of the lyricist… I have added the detail now…Thanks for pointing it out…

NVK sir !:-)

It is not my pointer about the lyrcist ! am stucked at the lyrics ,‘’Mujse bichad ke khush rahthe ho Meri tharah thum bhi jhootte ho !!’’ made me think & smile ! and i just wanted to know the lyricist thats all !:-)

Am sharing one more thought about another Ghazal ( i used to think like that …i cant help it LOL )

In one pankaj udhas ghazal – chandi jaisa rang hai tera – he says ‘’ek tu hi dhanwaan hai Gori baaki sab Kangaal :-)…whenever i listen to that song an Immediate Thought usually comes like this …’’Aapne apne gori ki taarif kee hain itni khoobi se…bohut khoob baat hain…magar baaaki kangaal kaise ho gayee ??! :-))

NVK Sir -you did a wonderful job …that too in short period learning & recording not an easy task !Very well done sir !


Krishnan N v ( nvk ) said


I feel in this ghazal when the poet says
“Mujh se bichad Ke Khush Rehte ho,
Meri tharah thum bhi jhootte ho” the poet probably wants to say that
“You are a liar (like me) when you claim that you are happy despite being away from me. Liar like me because I am also trying to console myself and pretend to be happy…”

i don’t think the lyrics was strange or funny…And yes regarding the Pankaj Udhas’s Ghazal, it was the poetic liberty to exaggerate to prove their point…:)

Harry Jassal (inactive) said

One of my favorite ghazals, had listened to Jagjit Singh ji for 2 years continuously (mid 2007-2009)…. Your rendition is near perfect, perhaps just like original. Loved your expressions, softer touch and harkats in every way !!

Have a listen to Rafi Sharddhanjli

NVK, beautiful song chosen. Beautiful singing-loved the depth of your voice. Congrats!


Ramesh Tadi Pro user said

Krishnan ji, kya baath hai!! you really amazed me always with these ghazals, make it look soo easy to cover (Ghazal…) like wat Shewag makes it look hitting fours and six’s with no foot moment at all… but we, many run away… :D

Nice soothing rendition with great feel and expression and fantastic lyrics… loved it.
Ramesh Tadi


Dj Wazif said

That was a beautiful singing Krish bhai and you adopted the correct mood of being separate and away from one’s beloved and the expressions about consoling oneself and other was just perfect. Jagjit’s ghazals suit you like anything and you should be trying more of him. Enjoyed my listening and hope you aren’t in that state of mind these days ;-)

Wish you Gr8 Luck!

Javed Bhai…. Don’t worry I am not in such a mood personally…lol Let me thank you for the encouragement you have been giving since last 3-4 years which has made me closer to Ghazals.,. I can never forget you and Praveen Pandit for all the help extended while doing the cover of ‘Koi Fariyaad …’ …You suggested me to sing this ghazal and Praveen arranged the Karaoke track by buying it online for me. You also made a video mix for my song…:)Thanks for all the help and encouragement…:)

Adina - I am having the ghazal “Woh kgaz ki Kashti …” in my list …Hope to do that soon. Thanks for suggesting…:)

Hema …. I also love to do the song Duniya ….In fact this was suggested by another singer Adithi Devarajan long long ago…However could not do that as singing such a song on Karaoke track is quite tough as sticking to the preset meters on the ad lib portions and the portions of harkats is not easy… Anyway shall try again and see if I get some success…:) Thanks for suggesting…
