It was only when researching on old Hindi films songs I came to know that the song was written by Makhdoom Mohiuddin. I had never heard his name in the context of film lyricist. It was only when I came across a couple of more songs from the films like ‘Gaman’ (1979) and ‘Baazaar’ (1982) that I became inquisitive about Makhdoom Mohiuddin
I was curious to know how Makhdoom found time to write Urdu poetry and when he was busy as a full time trade union and party activist. Since he was mostly based in Hyderabad, he became a part of the literary circle and regularly participated in mushairas. He also wrote songs for stage shows and dramas.
