Sampooran Singh Kalra, or Gulzar Deenvi, or Gulzar (as he is fondly known), was born on August 18, 1934. While we have all celebrated decades of his work, they have not been limited to just one art form. Today, fans have been chanting happy birthday Gulzar, and so are we.
While there are not enough words to celebrate his work, we thought of listing down some of the songs from the legend. So to say, there can never be a concise list of songs by the lyricist, we have managed to jot some of them down.
Here’s wishing him with his work, happy birthday Gulzar!
Tujhse Naaraz Nahin Zindagi
We have all been hooked to this song once, and even after all this time, it is one of the finest we’ve ever heard. There is an added sense of peace, one that follows the storm!
Woh Shaam Kuch Ajeeb Thi
Another masterpiece, out happy birthday Gulzar list cannot be complete without this one. Each song on this list seems to be a favourite and there is too little that one can change about that.
Mera Kuch Samaan
Do we even have to explain this song and its significance? Better than most of the songs, always!
Can we sing Happy Birthday Gulzar along with the beautiful music too?
Tere Bina Jiya Jaye Na
This is the kind of song you could write poems about, all for the sheer words they have. Is that even possible? With Gulzar Sa’ab, everything is!
Musaafir Hoon Yaro
A song that invokes so many emotions, one that only Gulzar Sa’ab is capable of bringing out. This one does so very beautifully, a song that stays with us all!
Tere Bina Zindagi Se Koi
Love songs have been the finest creation from the lyricist, and this is just one of those too many.
Tum Aa Gaye Ho Noor Aa Gaya Hai
Another fine song and a hit one, as well. Even though his songs have not always been around, we tend to go back to some of them, isn’t it?
Songs have always been the closest one can feel art and emotions, and Gulzar Sa’ab has his way through it, always had! With love and only love, this is our wish for the legendary lyricist. Happy Birthday, Gulzar!
