Poet Shailendra

In simple words, he wrote great poetry with deepest thoughts, feelings, and emotions. He dared to lodge his genuine complaint to God, duniya banane wale kaya tera mann main samai, kahe to duniya banai. Poet Shailendra, film producer Raj Kapoor, singer Mukesh, and Music director duo Shanker Jaikishan together became the most dominating combination in the golden era of Hindi film music of the ’50s and early ’60s. Some of his most popular and memorable lyrics are; Mera Joota Hai Japani, Chalat Musafir Moh Liya Re, Dil Ka Haal Sune Dilwala, Tu Pyar Ka Saagar Hai, Awara Hoon. Shailendra (30 August 1923 – 14 December 1966) was perhaps the most decorated lyricist in the Hindi film industry. His talent was aptly recognized by the government with the release of a postal stamp in 2013. o
