Tribute ::  Laxmikant ji (Laxmikant-Pyarelal) :: Birth Anniversary ::  

Laxmikant ji was born on the day of “Diwali” (the day of Lakshmi Puja), 2 / 3 November 1937.  He used to celebrate his birthday only on the day of Diwali.

Laxmikant ji spent his childhood amidst dire poverty in the slums of Vile-Parle (E) Mumbai. His father died when he was child.  Because of the poor financial conditions of the family he also could not even complete his academic education. As a child artist 

Laxmikant ji has worked in few Gujarati and Hindi pictures. He learnt Mandolin. Lata Mangeshkar spotted Laxmikant playing Mandolin and recommended his name to Shankar-Jaikishan, Naushad, S D Burman. Lata ji also sent Laxmikant to Hridaynath Mangeshkar’s music academy where he met Pyarelal ji. Laxmikant-Pyarelal “Friendship” (“दोस्ती”), started. 

Laxmikant ji was an excellent Mandolin player. Some of the  famous songs in which Laxmikant ji played Mandolin.

-Jadugar Sainyya  “Nagin” (Kalyanji-Anandji)

-Koi Aaya Dhadkan  “Lajwanti” (S D Burman)
