Composer Ravindra Jain’s Birthday


Today is Composer Ravindra Jain’s birthday. He was born blind in 1944. Ravindra Jain was not only a music composer but also a lyricist. He debuted with Kanch Aur Heera (1972). Ravindra Jain began singing at a very young age. He would recite Jain Bhajans and poetry by Jain poets. His parents took the initiative to enroll him with Pandit G L Jain, Pandit Janardhan Sharma and Pandit Nathu Ram for music training. He composed music for his first Bollywood movie song and Mohammad Rafi Sahab sang it. But, that song remains unreleased to this day.
