Munshi Premchand (31 July 1880- 8 october 1936) was a premier Hindi novelist whose novels and stories have had an enormous influence on modern Hindi literature. When I look at his literary output, I am amazed at his vision. His vision was unbelievably progressive and futuristic, especially considering the era he lived in (late 19th century to early 20th century).

Talat Mehmood started his musical career in 1939, singing ghazals on All India Radio, Lucknow. He had formally trained in music under Pt. SCR Bhat at the Morris Music College in Lucknow. His voice caught the attention of HMV, with whom he produced many records of non filmi ghazals. His records started gaining popularity, and in 1944 came the phenomenal hit, “Tasveer Teri Dil Mera Behlaa Na Sakegi”, which continues to be a very popular number on ghazal selections even today. The Calcutta film industry took notice and Talat moved to Calcutta. Initially, in Calcutta, he recorded many Bengali songs both for films and non-films, under the name ‘Tapan Kumar’. Talat as a person, had a handsome and commanding appearance and was offered cameo roles in the movies. In 1949, he moved to Bombay. After the release of “Aarzoo” (1950) and the unbeatable hit “Ae Dil Mujhe Aisi Jageh Le Chal”, composed by Anil Biswas, there was no looking back.
