KISHORE KUMAR was born on August 4, 1929, in a middle class family at Khandwa. His father, Kunjhalal Gangoly, was a lawyer by profession. Kishore was the youngest member in the family. His elder brother, Ashok Kumar, was 20 years older to him. Kishore went to a prominent school but was never interested in studies. He used to sing at home and his parents used to gift him money in return. Kishore was offered a small role in Ziddi and Khemchand Prakash heard Kishore Kumar singing. He gave Kishore Kumar a chance and he sang, Marne ki Duayen Kyon Mangu, for Dev Anand in typical K. L. Saigal style. The turning point came in 1969 with Aradhana. S. D. Burman was the music director and the songs were for Rajesh Khanna. Kishore sang many songs for Rajesh Khanna in early seventies and most of them became major hits. A few notable ones are Mere Sapnon ki Rani and Kora Kagaz Tha Yeh Man Mera.

Kishore Kumar was a versatile person; he was a singer, actor and music director. He gave music in many films and acted in a few popular ones like Half Ticket, Padosan and Chalti ka Naam Gaadi. He received many awards, including eight Filmfare Awards as the Best Male Playback Singer. The singer died due to heart attack in 1987. The Government of India released a postal stamp as an honour to the singer on May 15, 2003, a few days prior to his 74th birth anniversary this year. (www.downmelodylane.com)
