Q.

Gulzar is undoubtedly one of the best song writer India has ever produced.I'm not talking about his other wonderful capabilities, just concentrating on his role as a lyricist in film industry.He is entertaining us right from Bandini (1963) to the most recent Dilli 6 with his tender writing.He took us to a new world of romance from "Humne dekhi hai un aankhon ki mahakti si khushboo" in Khamosi.Songs of Ijazat were unimaginable.....
Congrats for the Oscar Gulzar Sahab!!
It's a privilege to follow your writings.

Question- Can you share few of your favorite songs written by Gulzar?

I think Gulzar is a genius with words,he has excelled in this field like no other and I have great respect and admiration for the sensitivity he exhibits in penning the finest pieces of emotions,woven into words as songs...
tere bina zindagi se koi shikwa to nahi.....
mera kuch saamaan tumhaare paas padha hai....
is mod se jaate hain,kuch sust kadam rakh ke.....
dil se...the title song....
and all the songs of almost all his movies....filhaal in particular......the list is rather endless...

Yes, he was here in my city to grace the chief guest chair of a local function organized by a cine~music lovers association namely `Shabd~Sur` means `Words and Melody`. My maternal uncle is one of the founder members and after approaching with the Executive Council, Gulzaar Saab instantly had accepted our invitation since the program was to memorize another great man in Hindi film Sangeet ~ The one and only MADAN MOHAN ~ . Four full hours Gulzaar saab with us, and exchanged his well experienced views and his days with this master Madan Mohan. Try to picture that scene where at the river bank city hall, he is among us, the cine lovers, the music lovers, his admirers, Madan Saab`s admirers (and you know there are many who surely wont wish to stop listening and learning and exchanging anything that relates with Madan Mohan and Gulzaar), and in ...more
