  5. जगजीत सिंह हम सभी के बीच में सिर्फ याद नहीं एहसास बनकर मौजूद हैं... ग़ज़ल और उर्दू जैसे अभिन्न थे, परन्तु जगजीत जी ने ग़ज़ल हिंदी में लिखकर, ग़ज़ल के एक नए रूप से परिचय कराया और हर युवा के दिल को छू लिया...

    आज उनकी जन्मतिथि पर मैं उन्हें सच्चे दिल से श्रद्धांजलि देते हुए यही कहना चाहूँगा कि प्रेम की भावना को उन्होंने जिस पवित्रता और समर्पण से जोड़ा है और पाश्य संस्कृति से प्रभावित युवाओं को वफादारी का मतलब सिखाया है वो अत्यंत सराहनीय है...
