Saturday Korcha 3.2.18 Gulzar

Born August 18, 1934

He was born in a Sikh family in Dina, now in Pakistan, his family relocated to India after partition of India and Pakistan. His career as a lyricist started with legendary movie Bandini, where he wrote one song- one of my forever favorites, sung by Lata Mangeshkar, it is a very soft love song, “Mora gora ang lai le” but he got his well deserved fame after he wrote (one of my hottest favorite songs) for movie Khamoshi, “Hamne dekhi hai un ankhon kee mahakti khusbu.” You know there are those songs that make you repeat again and again “What a lyric!” as if once is not enough- this is one of those songs to me. Please please read the lyrics of this song if you can in hindi or English whatever language you can manage in. This is just one specimen of his penmanship’s magic! There are too many songs of him that fit in that category.

Now if you sit down with red ink pen you will find many faults in his lyrics, honestly, quite often he played with nonsense but created a beautiful song, so, you will have to hear them with open mind and accept his playfulness to adore his songs.

NOTE: There is not much to say about it, I think in this series I will just open their pages in internet, pick up the things that I have loved about them and share them with you. At the end mention the site which gave me the information.

In this case it is of course good old Wikipedia. You can check out in case it has something extra to offer.

I will be posting pieces from Agnishatdal and Agnijaat here, if you like them and check out the Ezines you can now buy them from two spots:

1. directly from paypal (each issue costs $1

2. Indirectly from my patreon profile:

Few talks about some favorite stars, irrespective of their field of music, art.
They are collected from various sites or are just my view of them. You will know
the difference when you read the post, most are from wikipedia.

These are from the fun section of the Ezines.

I dont know, being me I may have missed mentioning it, do remember one thing,
as you read these works, some of these are my personal views and whatever data,
you see in these are collected from various sites of internet, mostly
wikipedia, and quite often from the sites of the artists

You know I dont know everything right? I am just a student who is sharing her
notes with you!



A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me, or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- And if you want fb you can go to my page, linkedin- my email id and I am in goodreads and completelynovel too I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)
