About the Book

"All about lyrics & the lyricists." -- A tribute - by ace writer, journalist & broadcaster Raza Ali Abdi - to the lyricists of the Indian subcontinent who have often remained unsung. A chronological survey of popular songs of Indian theatre, gramophone record industry and cinema. One of the reasons for writing the book is to give due credit, recognition and status to the Lyricists/songwriters of the Indian subcontinent who had created many a hit song. A beautiful replay of nostalgic & melodious memories and anecdotes that also covers composers/music directors, film directors & producers. The author, Raza Ali Abdi (b. 1936, Roorkee), a British of Pakistani origin settled in London, is particularly known for his radio documentaries on the Grand Trunk (G.T.) Road and the River Indus. His published works include travelogues and several collections of cultural essays and short stories. He has worked with the BBC Urdu Service and retired in 1996 as its Head.
