Marathi poet-lyricist Sudhir Moghe, 75, the winner of Maharashtra government’s best lyricist award, the GaDiMa Chaitraban and Keshavsut awards passed away in Pune. Born in 1939 to a kirtankar father, Moghe was creatively predisposed; a quality that was further nurtured by his actor brother Shrikant Moghe. His lyrics, sung by greats such as Lata Mangeshkar and Hemant Kumar, were part of over 50 Marathi films including ‘Ha Khel Savlyancha’, ‘Shapit’, ‘Pudhcha Paul’, ‘Atmavishwas’, ‘Kalat-Nakalat’, ‘Chaukat Raja’ and ‘Deool’. The Late Pt. Bhimsen Joshi hailed him as a kaviraj. As spontaneous as he was creative, Moghe was famous for not penning lyrics on paper but composing them in a couple of hours in his head after listening to a tune. He was also a music director, dialogue writer, occasional painter, actor and theatre presenter. His poetry recital show ‘Kavita Panopani’ was very popular. Always open to fresh ideas, Moghe frowned upon mediocrity.
