“एक दिन सपनों का राही, चला जाए सपनों से आगे, कहाँ?”

“Ek din sapano kaa raahi, Chalaa jaae sapano ke aage, kahaan?”

Remembering writer and lyricist Yogesh Gaur on his 4th death anniversary (29/05/2020).

Yogesh was born on March 19, 1943, in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. He moved to Bombay at the age of 16 to find work and sought help from his cousin, Yogendra Gaur, a screenplay writer. During his early struggles, he even acted as an extra in the hit mythological film Chakradhari.

In 1962, Yogesh got his big break by writing six songs for the movie Sakhi Robin, including “Tum jo aa jao,” sung by Manna Dey, which launched his career in Bollywood. He worked with renowned directors like Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee.

Some of his famous Hindi songs include “Kahin Door Jab Din Dal Jaaye,” “Zindagi Kaisi Hai Paheli,” “Rimjhim Gire Saawan,” “Kai Baar Yunhi Dekha Hai” from Rajnigandha, and “Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha” from Baaton Baaton Mein. Yogesh also wrote for television serials.
