Product Description

Rakesh Anand Bakshi is a scriptwriter and the author of Directors' Diaries: The Road to Their First Film and Let's Talk on Air: Conversations with Radio Presenters. He is an aspiring director and actor, and a swimming, cycling and gym enthusiast. Rakesh runs Bicycle Angels, a non-profit social initiative supported by friends that gives bicycles and wheelchairs to the underprivileged and teaches the visually impaired how to use a computer. He co-founded, with Kanika Kedia, I Adore You Diaries, which creates personalized diaries. He also authors a blog, Beautiful Bicycles Beautiful People, on cyclists, their rides and stories.An intimate peek into the life of the soldier-turned-lyricist Anand Bakshi, from his formative years in undivided Punjab to eventually moving to Bombay and landing his first film Bhala Aadmi in 1958. Along the way, he lost his mother, his place of birth, and his home and wealth, but his zeal to stand up and walk after every stumble and his desire to become a film artist never abated. He eventually rose to become one of the most revered and sought-after lyricists in Hindi cinema, writing nearly 3300 songs in about 630 films over the next five decades. Written by his son, this is an inspiring story of faith, dreams, success and, above all, human values.But, as the writer says, it would require more than one volume to cover the entire span of his father's work. For his admirers, however, this book strikes a fine balance between Anand Bakshi the person and Anand Bakshi the lyricist.Perhaps therein lies his legacy. Our truest emotions are the ones we share with others. For most of us, this truth is a dim reality, further inwards than we can see. Not for Bakshi. He took our inmost fears, desires and longings and presented them back to us. He gave us the gift of self.The 'life and lyrics' of Anand Bakshi were often correlated. It seemed as if the songs themselves narrated his life story, along with that of thousands of his listeners.
