Indian Cultural Personality

Kundan Lal Saigal, the famous singer was born on April 11, 1904 in
Jammu and Kashmir. He was very much influenced by his mother who used to sing Punjabi religious Bhajans. He also had
talent in acting. Saigal's initial performance was at the age of 12 in the Darbar of Maharaja Pratap Singh. Later he
left home and took up various jobs in order to earn a living.

His visit to Kolkata in 1932 for an official
matter, was a turning point in his life. There he met the famous film-cum-music director R.C. Boral and he gave a chance
for Saigal. He stepped into the film field by singing R.C. Boral's songs in the film 'Pooran Bagat'.

Some of Saigal's famous songs are 'Soja rajakumari soja' and 'jab dil hi toot gayaa', 'karoon kya as-niras bhai'
(dushman), 'main kya janoo kya jadoo hai' (zindagi) etc. He died on January 18, 1947 at the age of 43.
