Jagjit Singh : What will be the future of Ghazals after him ?

I was holidaying in Delhi when I heard the news of Jagjit Singh's sad demise. I knew that  Jagjit Ji was in super critical stage on ventilator support for past few weeks. But there was some hope against hope that some miracle will happen by the grace of God. But it did not happened  & Jagjit left us  with a void in Ghazal singing in India.

Jagjit always maintained in his interview that like the golden 80's the era of Ghazal will be back, He was always very critical about the role of electronic media in hampering  the growth of Ghazals in India.

You can read his views about future of Ghazals here along with the links of the post I have written about Jagjit Singh here.
