It is said that Prabaht Films’ ‘Amrit Manthan’ (1934) has the distinction of having songs in ghazal format for the first time. I found that there were 3 songs in this film in ghazal format written by Veer Mohammed Puri. I had never heard of the name of this lyricist (or poet). So the curiosity led me to make a search for his name in websites. Unfortunately, I could not get much information about the lyricist except a hint that he was a poet which I guessed from a ghazal ‘kamsini mein dil pe gham ka bhaar kyon’ from the same film that he had used ‘Veer’ as his takhallus (alias) in the maqta (last she’r) of the ghazal.

While discussing songs, I often like to discuss songs that are rare/ unusual/unexpected in some ways. For example, songs sung by people normally not known for their singing, songs composed by people who are normally known for some other activity, lyricist/music director/singer figuring in the picturisation of the song etc.
