The moon of Bakshi’s song may not be visible. The truth is that every second or third song that we hear around us at some time or the other, we sing and hum. A song written by Anand Bakshi can be found in it. A lyricist who wrote more than 3300 songs for more than 600 films from 1962 to 2002. Who was called the lyricist of the common man, who was called the poet of today’s society, that touch of folk songs which is reflected in his songs. This is not hidden from those who know and like him. Today we are going to tell you one such story which shows the simplicity that was there in his songs.

When I sold school books

Actually the matter is of the year 1943 when the family members had sent Anand Bakshi Saheb to a boarding school in Jammu. The family said that if he stayed away from home in a Gurukul, he would miss his poor friends from Pindi (Rawalpindi, Pakistan) who were pulling him towards singing and acting. Because Anand Bakshi Saheb was born on 21 July 1930 in undivided India. He was always fond of working in films. One day, he along with his school friends planned to sell his school books and go to Bombay by train. Then I put down my books and reached Rawalpindi station. But his friends did not come to the station, so he did not have the courage to go alone in an unknown city, so this dream also got shattered.
