Lyricist Indeever Birthday Unknown facts: The birthday of the great lyricist Indeevar, who wrote more than 1000 songs in more than 300 films, falls on the day of Independence Day.

Born in the name of Shyamlal Babu Rai, Indeevar was born on 1 January 1924 in Jhansi.
From the song ‘Mere Desh Ki Dharti Sona Ugle’ in the 1967 film Upkar to ‘Nadiyan Chale Chale Re Dhara’ from the film Safar (1970), from ‘Hon Se Chhu Lo Tum, Mera Geet Amar Kar Do’ to ‘Pal Bhar Ke’ Indeevar wrote these evergreen songs till Liye Koi Humse Pyar Kar Le Jhootha Hi Sahi. Indeevar is one of the most successful lyricists of Hindi cinema but his journey to reach Arsh was a struggle.
Inspired by Fakkad Baba
His parents died in his childhood. After this his elder sister and brother-in-law took him with them. Sister-in-law did not feel like it, so he came back. Fakkad Baba used to live under a huge tree in Gulab Bagh in Baruwa Sagar near Jhansi. He used to sing very well. Indeevar came in contact with Baba and he became interested in writing and singing songs. He started singing self-written songs, bhajans by making ragas from Babaji’s tongs.
Indivar ran away from marriage
When Indeevar became young, he got married to a girl named ‘Parvati’ living in Jhansi without his consent and after running away from this marriage, Indivar went to Mumbai. For many years he roamed the place of film directors, poets and writers. Finally in 1946, his first song came in the film ‘Double Face’ which could not play. After giving up, he again returned to Baruwa Sagar. After coming back, he stayed with the wife from whom he had run away and started saving married life. A few years later, he went to Mumbai again and wrote songs for the film Malhar in 1949. One of the songs in this movie was ‘Bade Armaan Se Rakha Hai Balam Teri Kasam’. This song gave Indeevar recognition. After that, he went up step-by-step. He wanted to take his wife Parvati with him but she stayed here. In such a situation, a sense of separation started appearing in the songs of Indeevar.
