About Kavi Pradeep


Kavi Pradeep (कवि प्रदीप) (6 February 1915 - 11 December 1998) was a popular Indian poet and film lyricist, most known for his patriotic song, Aye Mere Watan Ke Logo (O! the people of my motherland!), written as tribute to the soldiers who had died defending the country, during the Sino-Indian War. The song was famously performed live, by Lata Mangeshkar, in the presence of Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru at the Ramlila grounds, New Delhi, on Republic Day, 26 January 1963 [2], and moved him to tears [3], and a copy of the soundtrack spool was also gifted to him on the occasion. Despite many offers, Kavi Pradeep, pledged the royalties of the song to \War Widows Fund\, and on August 25, 2005, Bombay High Court, ordered, Saregama (HMV) to pay Rs 10 lakh as arrears in royalty due to the Fund [4]. His first recognition, for his patriotic song, \"Chal chal re naujawan\"
