Through the dulcet tones of Rajesh Thakur on Tune India Radio, listeners embark on a captivating journey through Bakshi’s life and music.

Anand Bakshi’s journey is nothing short of extraordinary. Born on July 21, 1930, in Rawalpindi, British India (now in Pakistan), Bakshi migrated to India during the partition. Little did he know that his passion for poetry would lead him to become one of Bollywood’s most celebrated lyricists.

One of the most fascinating aspects of Bakshi’s career is his versatility. From soulful romantic ballads to foot-tapping dance numbers, his repertoire spans across genres and generations. Whether it’s the poignant “Zindagi ke safar men guzar jaate hain jo makaam ” from the movie “Aap Ki Kasam” or the playful “Do Lafzon Ki Hai Dil Ki Kahani” from “The Great Gambler,” Bakshi’s lyrics have a timeless appeal that transcends boundaries.

But Bakshi’s journey wasn’t without its share of challenges. Despite facing criticism and rejection early in his career, he persevered with unwavering determination, eventually carving a niche for himself in the industry.
