Shankardas Kesrilal “Shailendra” wrote some of the most memorable songs for Hindi films in the 1950s and 1960s.

His songs reflect his keen observation of life, culture, relations and emotions and his hope for a fair and just world.

Raj Kapoor, Shailendra’s friend, collaborator and great admirer of his poetic talent fondly called him ‘Kavi-raj’ – eminent poet.

For his expression of deep, serious thought in simple words in the language of the common man, Shailendra is ‘Jana-kavi’ – people’s poet, to his numerous fans.

Shailendra’s songs endure and continue to delight us, amaze us, enchant us, inspire us and move us with emotion.

This website – a humble tribute to the work of the great lyricist-poet – aims to be a complete reference for his songs and lyrics.
