Rashid Atre:

He was born in Amritsar in 1919 and studied music under Khan Ashfaq Hussain and gained expertise in playing multiple instruments. He started composing for films in 1942 and was most comfortable composing ghazals. Nateeja (1947) is likely his best known soundtrack from before partition and his migration to Pakistan though he is also remembered for composing “Vo jo ham me tum me qaraar tha” for the movie Shikaayat. Though a number of luminaries like Rafi, Amirbai, Zohrabai Ambalewali, Parul Ghosh etc had sung under his baton, he truly blossomed in Pakistan after migration and was a well awarded music personality.he died fairly young, at age 48 in December 1967.
