Singer Javed Ali recently enthralled the audience with his melodious voice during a performance at the historic Qutb Minar in New Delhi. Invited as part of the launch of the web portal “Mera Gaon Meri Dharohar,” Javed Ali charmed the crowd with his popular songs.
The Qutb Minar holds a special place in Javed Ali’s heart, as it reminds him of his childhood memories. He fondly recalls visiting the dargah of Hazrat Qutbuddin Bakhtiar Kaki with his father, where they would offer prayers and spend quality time together. Even now, with his father no longer by his side, the monument acts as a reminder of those precious moments spent with his father.
Reflecting on the significance of the venue, Javed Ali shared, “I tend to have a very deep-rooted, emotional, and divine connection with the Qutb Minar. It always reminds me of my father and those childhood days that I’d always wish to keep close to my heart.”
Despite the heavy rains and the flood-like situation in Delhi, Javed Ali was determined not to miss this opportunity to perform at the Qutb Minar. Speaking about his love for the monsoon season, Javed Ali expressed his nostalgia for his childhood days in Delhi. In Mumbai, where he currently resides, the rains come unannounced, unlike Delhi, where he remembers joyfully running around with a balloon or tying a string to a polybag, anticipating the rain and enjoying the playful moments.
Alongside his love for the monsoons, Javed Ali also reminisces about the delectable food from the streets of Old Delhi and Jama Masjid. Whenever in Delhi, he ensures his entire team gets to experience the delicious delights of the Jama Masjid area.
