Biography
 
Sahir Ludhianvi was a celebrated Urdu and Hindi poet songwriter and lyricist. After completing his secondary education from Khalsa High School in Ludhiana he moved to Lahore in 1939 to join the Government College.

In Lahore he started reciting his ghazals and poems at different gatherings. Eventually he settled in Lahore and published his maiden collection of Urdu poems titled Taalkhiyaan
More
(Bitterness). He also began editing four Urdu magazines namely Adab-e-Lateef Shahkaar Prithlari and Savera. Shortly afterwards he joined the Progressive Writers� Association and became a member of the Communist Party.

Sahir�s inflammatory writings in the pages of Savera made him unpopular with the authorities and the Pakistani Government issued an arrest warrant against him. Sometime in 1949 he fled to Delhi and after a few months moved and settled down in Mumbai.

As a lyricist he made his debut in the film Aazadi Ki Raah Par (1949) but it was Naujawaan (1951) where he penned the haunting �Thandi hawayen lehre ke aaye� set to tune by S. D. Burman that made him widely known. Naujawaan also marked a fruitful association with S. D Burman that continued in Baazi (1951) and Pyaasa (1957). In 1958 he wrote the lyrics for Ramesh Saigal's film Phir Subah Hogi based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel Crime and Punishment.

He worked with almost every major composer of his day including Khayyam Ravi S. D. Burman and Roshan. Sahir Ludhianvi�s output diminished in quantity during the 70s as he started working exclusively for Yash Chopra films. However he returned in flamboyant form with the film Kabhie Kabhie (1976).

Sahir�s poetry embraced the more prosaic and mundane issues that reflected his times. A bachelor throughout his life his frustrated romances found expression in his art often in gloomy colours. The egoistic and rebellious aspect of his personality left mixed impressions of him amongst his contemporaries. However more often than not his actions proved beneficial in reforming certain standard customs. For example he is said to be the first person to have insisted on All India Radio announcing the names of the lyricists along with the singers and the music composers for the songs being aired.

He died on 25 October 1980 after a cardiac arrest.
