Neeraj is a poet and author in Hindi literature who used to be a lyricist in the Hindi film industry. The civilian honour of Padma Bhushan came his way in 2007. Born as Gopaldas Saxena on 4 January 1924 in Uttar Pradesh, he uses “Neeraj” as pen name. Besides being a writer he is also a professor of Hindi literature.

Having given a number of hit songs to Bollywood, he quit the industry following the deaths of music directors Jaikishan of Shankar-Jaikishan and S. D. Burman. He believes that he is an unlucky poet because a couple of music directors he wrote hit songs for expired unexpectedly.
