Hasrat Jaipuri

Hasrat Jaipuri, born Iqbal Ahmed (15 April 1922 – 17 September 1999) was an Indian poet, who wrote in the Hindi and Urdu languages. He was also a renowned film lyricist in Hindi films, where he won the Filmfare Awards for Best Lyricist twice. Jaipuri was born Iqbal Husain in Jaipur, where he studied English till medium level, and then acquired his taalim (education) in Urdu and Persian from his paternal grandfather, Fida Husain. He began writing verse, when he was around twenty years old. Around the same time, he fell in love with a neighborhood girl name Radha. Hasrat talked about a love letter he wrote to this girl, in an interview, later in his life, that love knows no religion. Hasrat Jaipuri was quoted as saying, "It is not at all necessary that a Muslim boy must fall in love only with a Muslim girl. My love was silent, but I wrote a poem for her, "Yeh mera prem patra padh kar, ke tum naaraaz na hona." It is not known for sure whether the love letter was actually delivered to Radha. But veteran film producer Raj Kapoor liked it enough to include it in his Sangam (1964 Hindi film) and the song ended up becoming a "hit" song in India. Awards : Filmfare Best Lyricist Award - 1972 for Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana (Andaz, 1971) Filmfare Best Lyricist Award - 1966 for the song Baharo Phool Barsao [Suraj (1966 film) Josh Malihabadi Award, from Urdu Conference Dr. Ambedkar Award, for Jhanak Jhanak Tori Baaje Payaliya [Mere Huzoor (1968)], a Brajbhasha song Jaipuri was also awarded a doctorate degree from the World University Round Table.
