When God was drinking the finest, most velvety of His wines, in one of His sweetest-sounding goblets, He created Pankaj Udhas! And, then came the 80's when the boring or mostly soul-less Bollywood music was, to some extent, compensated with some other-worldly non-filmy ghazal music and lyrics - right when Pankaj Udhas was in his prime.
Pankaj Udhas, in 70's and 80's was a different singer from what he became later. I have no idea why he started singing with an overly sweet, no-throw voice in the 90's. Similar to what Kumar Sanu did around the end of 90's, and Arijit Singh is doing now.
