great poet, Sahir Ludhianvi. Mister Sahir was born on 8th March 1921. When he was born, he was named as Abdul Hayee. But like every poet, after
growing up Mister Sahir.. ..chose a new name for himself. And that name is Sahir Lundhianvi. Sahir means magician, and in true sense.. ..Sahir Ludhianvi was a magician of words. “What if I settle my heart in your eyes?” “What if I close my eyelids
and punish this heart?” Mister Sahir belonged to Ludhiana. He spent his childhood in
a lot of hurt and pain. His parents had broke off their relation. Mister Sahir’s mother had
only fed and nurtured him. Mister Sahir completed his
graduation in Ludhiana itself. “I will put flowers of love in your hair.” “What if I tweak my hair and
make these flowers fall?” “What if I settle my heart in your eyes?” Since early times, there was
a lot of pain and passion.. ..in Mister Sahir’s heart. He inculcated that pain in
his first book as well. This book containing poems was named Talkhian. Mister Sahir started writing songs for movies.. ..and his first movie was Azadi Ki Raah Par. The movie came in 1949, but
the songs written by.. ..Sahir, did not amaze any one. But the movie Naujawan, that
came in 1951, in which a.. ..pair of S.D.
Burman and Sahir Ludhianwi was formed.. ..earned a lot of praises. “If your head starts feeling dizzy,
or your heart feels like.. ..drowning, come lovable, come near me.” “Why are you getting scared?
