Prasoon Joshi writes prayer song for Ajmer Sharif

Renowned lyricist Prasoon Joshi, who won accolades for his work through the years, has written a prayer song to mark the 801st anniversary of the Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz Dargah in Ajmer. The prayer song titled 'Khwaja Ka Ishaara' will be launched today at a special light and sound show. Talking about the composing for the Dargah, Prasson says, "I have had a special connection with Ajmer Sharif ever since I was a child. I feel blessed to have been given this opportunity."

The chief minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Ghelot will be unveiling the event at the Akbari Quila in Ajmer. Sharing his thoughts about the holy location and the project Prasoon says, "I have had a special connection with Ajmer Sharif ever since I was a child. I feel blessed to have been given this opportunity. As they say, it's a hukm (directive) and not everybody gets one. It wouldn't have been possible without the inspirational conversations I had with Bina Kak (politician), who has been instrumental in this project."

Shedding light on writing the song Prasoon says, "I have penned it in Hindavi (a fusion of Hindi and Urdu), which is a language that was used in the earlier days. Sonu Nigam has sung it magically and Sajid-Wajid have composed it."

When contacted, SM Fasihuddin Moini, the Moallim of the dargah says, "This period is called Urs (the death anniversary of the Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti, in honour of whom the Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz Dargah has been erected). People do a lot of special things during this time."
