Finally we got passes for today's Sham-e-Ghazal by Jagjeet Singh. We have been trying to see his live performance for last 6 years but we never managed to get tickets or invitation-Passes. This time, one of my friend arranged few passes for us and we had a lovely evening today ! Although it was but disappointing that cameras were not allowed inside :) ... but thanks to Adobe for gifting HTC Desire HD with nice Camera !!! So this was a good opportunity to try that in very low light conditions... Here are few photographs of Sham-e-Ghazal which are clicked with HTC Desire HD !!!

Mail Today organized Sham-e-Ghazal on 6th March at Sirifort Auditorium and it was planned to start at 6:00 pm... Plan was to close the gates by 5:45 pm and seat availability was on the basis of first come first serve !!! We reached at 5:15 pm and followed the queue.. I mean, started waiting for opening of gate !! There were very few folks at that time and people started coming. At 5:45 pm there were lot of Jagjeet fans in that queue...

At 6:00 pm , gates were yet to be opened. It was bit surprising but there were no signs of opening the gates within next 15 mins.. There were two lines initially, one for men and other for women ! After 6:15 pm, few ladies came and started a new line. Other two lines were 300 meter long and people standing at the end started complaining about this third line. Security folks were very lazy and they didn't do anything even when many folks requested them to follow right practices. But no use !! Even people standing in third row were simply ignoring others.. All this didn't impact us because we were in the beginning of first two rows !
