Ghazal: Insha Ji utho ab Kooch karo is shehr mein Ji ko lagana kya ..
It was sung originally by Asad's Father Ustad Amanat Ali Khan as his last song for PTv. Now the son following him.


insha ji utho,aab koch karo
is shehar main ji ko lagana kiya

weshi ko sakoon se kiya matlab

jogi ka nagar main thikana kiya

is dil kay darida daman main

dekho to sahi socho to sahi

jis jholi main so chayd hoay

jis jholi main so chhayd hoay

us jholi ka phaylana kiya

shab beti chand bhi doob chala
zanjeer pari darwazay main

kion dair gaey gher aey ho

kion dair gaey gher aey ho

jab shehar k log na rasta dain

kion bun main na ja bisraam karay

jab shehar k log na rasta dain

kion bun main na ja bisraam karay

diwano ki si na baat karay

to aur karay diwana kiya


انشا جی اٹھو اب کوچ کرو، اس شہر ميں جی کو لگانا کيا
وحشی کو سکوں سےکيا مطلب، جوگی کا نگر ميں ٹھکانا کيا
اس دل کے دريدہ دامن میں، ديکھو تو سہی سوچو تو سہی
جس جھولی ميں سو چھيد ہوئے، اس جھولی کا پھيلانا کيا
شب بيتی، چاند بھی ڈوب چلا، زنجير پڑی دروازے پہ
کيوں دير گئے گھر آئے ہو، سجنی سے کرو گے بہانہ کيا
پھر ہجر کی لمبی رات مياں، سنجوگ کی تو يہی ايک گھڑی
جو دل ميں ہے لب پر آنے دو، شرمانا کيا گھبرانا کيا
اس حسن کے سچے موتی کو ہم ديکھ سکيں پر چھو نہ سکيں
جسے ديکھ سکيں پر چھو نہ سکيں وہ دولت کيا وہ خزانہ کيا
جب شہر کے لوگ نہ رستہ ديں، کيوں بن ميں نہ جا بسرام کریں
ديوانوں کی سی نہ بات کرے تو اور کرے ديوانہ کيا

Asad Amanat Ali Khan (September 25, 1955 -- April 8, 2007) was a popular classical, semi-classical and ghazal singer from Pakistan. Hailing from famous Patiala Gharana, Asad was son of famous musician Ustad Amanat Ali Khan. Asad Amanat Ali Khan died relatively young of heart attack on April 8, 2007 in London.
Early life and background

Asad Amanat Ali Khan was born in Lahore, Pakistan. His great-grandfather, Ali Baksh Khan, was the founder of the Patiala Gharana. His grandfather, Akhtar Hussain, was a prominent musician of his time who added to his repute by coaching two of his sons into becoming a formidable singing duo(Amanat Ali Khan and Fateh Ali Khan). Amanat Ali Khan, Asad's father, died in 1974. Asad's younger brother Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan is a popular pop singer and he was the lead singer of band Fuzon.
Singing career

When he was 10 years old Asad recorded his first song, which featured on his grandfather's debut album. He had also been interested in academics and often said if not a singer, he would love to be a pilot. He joined a private institution however and began singing professionally after completing his F.A. He started his musical career performing "Thumri" and then went on to record some of his most popular Punjabi numbers and Ghazals, such as "Umra Lagian", "Zara Zara", "Kal Chaudwin Ki Raat", and "Ghar Wapas Jab". One of the songs that featured in almost every concert he performed, arguably his biggest hit, was "Insha Ji Utho" (Originally sung by his father).

Asad worked for Pakistan Television for several years. Nisar Bazmi, composer and PTV producer, who died one week before him, gave him his first break, introducing the artist to the world on live television. He retained his affiliation with television through the years, recording over 1,000 songs. Asad also contributed to the Pakistani film industry, featuring on a number of soundtracks. Moreover, he caught the attention of neighboring Bollywood and contributed to soundtracks there too.

Asad also sang as a member of singing duo with his uncle Hamid Ali Khan. Asad owed much of his early recognition to his late father's famous numbers. Quite often his concert would round off with "Insha'a Jee utho, abb cooch karo" (Get up O Insha! It's time to leave the world) — [Insha Allah Khan born 15 June 1927 d. 11 January 1978) who wrote it, a song that finds another ironic reference in Asad's death. , Amanat Ali and Asad Amanat who sang it — both died relatively young. Other than music and the family name, Asad inherited from his father a passion to act in films. But the affair was cut short after an unsuccessful attempt.

Asad Amanat Ali was also famed for his "soz-o-salam" recitations in Urdu describing the events of Karbala during Ashura in Muharram, and appeared on many radio and television specials about Karbala over the years before his death.
