This is a humble collection of songs of Sahir Ludhianvi, the greatest lyricist, Bollywood has ever seen. Sahir used his songs for spreading message of love for humankind through philosophical notes or social commentary. He also used some of his ghazals & nazms in his movies also by simplifying them.

Einstein’s Quote about Mahatma Gandhi fits perfectly well about stature of Sahir Ludhianvi’s Poetry & Philosophy in Literature & Bollywood history-- “Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth. (said Einstein of Mahatma Gandhi)” Sahir’s poetry & wisdom would shine on this earth long after we have perished. SAHIR= Wisdom of Aristotle+Brilliance of Einstein. Sahir Ludhianvi was FIRST A PHILOSOPHER who wrote poetry to convey his GOD GIVEN WISDOM & life experiences of his own to common man for his/her welfare in his poetry. Every word was carefully crafted & inserted in the right context to convey true message from that great thinker for A given situation (issue facing common man under similar circumstances).Not even one other published poet in any language on this earth has addressed so many diverse issues facing the mortals in his/her work as Sahir has done in impeccable manner & forceful combination of words.ReplyDelete
Long after we (mortals) have perished immortal poetry by SAHIR would shine on this earth with light radiated by NEXT SUN after demise of the present Sun (and that is perhaps few hundred million years from now-- and also if "MEN" do not kill each other in between all those long years & life has to start with single cell organisms once again as full circle on this earth second time around).
