LAHORE Ustad Amanat Ali Khan, renowned classical singer and Ghazal vocalist, who was immortalized by his famous Ghazal Insha Je Utho Ab Kooch Kro was almost forgotten by his admirers and fans on his 36th death anniversary as no major ceremony was held to pay tribute to this unmatchable singer in the cultural hub, Lahore on Saturday. Talking to TheNation on telephone, Ustad Tassadaq Ali Khan of Sham Chaurasi Gharana said Ustad Amanat Ali Khan had done unma-tchable work especially in Rag Dharpat and Khyal. He said the artists like Ustad Amanat Ali Khan are born after centuries who become source of inspiration for their followers. Regrettably he said this was our national tragedy that we were forgetting our legendary artists as in case of Ustad Amanat Ali Khan. This is our unfortunate tradition of forgetting the national heroes as none from Ustad Amanat Ali Khans fans or follower singers bothered to organise a function or ceremony in his honour, he added. Ustad Amanat was born in 1932 at Hoshiarpur, Punjab to Akhtar Husain Khan and the grandson of Ali Baksh Khan, the founder of 'Patiala Gharana. Along with Ustad Fateh Ali Khan, the young Amanat Ali started singing for gatherings (mehfils) and at an early age he became a recognized singer in the court of the Patiala king. Soon after independence Khan Sahib moved to Pakistan and in the late 1950s and early 1960s saw the rise of seraphic singer Ustad Amanat Ali. The prestigious Patiala Gharana, the family that sworn to carry on the traditional and classical aura of Hindustani music, saw another immaculate and faultless singer adding more shine, prestige and prosperity to their name. Along with Ahmed Rushdi and Mehdi Hassan, he was a top singing icon of the Indian Sub-Continent. He was honoured with the 'Pride of Performance award by the government of Pakistan. His memorable songs include Aa Mere Pyaar Ki Khushboo, Yeh Arzoo Thi, Mausam Badla, Yeh Na Thi Hamari Qismat, Aey Watan Pyarey Watan, Honton Pe Kabhi Unkey Mera Naam Hi Aye and Kab Aao Ge. Amanat Ali died at aged of 42 years in Lahore in September 1974. His eldest son Ustad Asad Amanat Ali Khan inherited his fathers beautiful voice and talent. After a very successful music career, Asad Amanat Ali died of heart attack on April 8, 2007, in London. Since most of the new singers like Shafqat Amanat Ali and Rustam Fateh Ali have moved away from classical Patiala style of singing, this leaves Amanats brothers Ustad Bade Fateh Ali Khan and Hamid Ali Khan, as the last of the Patiala legends.
