8 March: Sahir Ludhianvi's birth anniversary.

Sahir Ludhianvi"In past wars only homes burnt, but this time Don't be surprised if even loneliness ignites. In past wars only bodys burnt, but this time Don't be surprised if even shadows ignite." - Sahir Ludhianvi.

Sahir Ludhianvi (b. 8 March 1921 – d. 25 October 1980) was a popular Urdu poet and Hindi lyricist, who worked extensively in Hindi films. Sahir Ludhianvi is his pseudonym. He won the Filmfare Award twice, in 1964 and 1977, and in 1971 was awarded the Padma Shri. A comprehensive book named 'Main Sahir Hoon' (Available in Hindi & Urdu) on Life and Works of Sahir Ludhianvi written in autobiographical style is only of its kind to understand the psyche of the legendary poet.
