Sanjeev Dixit â€˜Babloo (30) is an ambassador of Himachali culture whose contribution to its enrichment through singing is worth mentioning.
Hailing from Pandtehar village under Baijnath tehsil, Sanjeevâ€™s penchant for singing seems to have born with him. â€˜â€˜I vividly recall how I would love crooning pahari ditties to a small pack of childhood chums at the age of 5.
â€œAt college also I faired pretty well as for my participation in music concerts is concerned. I became the star performer of my college. Mine was the name to reckon with at various inter-college competitions in ghazal and folk-singing hosted by our college and others.
Sanjeev, whose song â€˜â€˜Bus khariâ€™O meri Kamlo….â€™â€™ from his superhit album â€˜â€˜Nuth Karahaniyanâ€™â€™ became very popular in the Kangra valley, has a rich repertoire of as many as 70 audio-video albums to credit, including â€˜â€˜Indroâ€™â€™, â€˜â€˜Paindal lashqeOâ€™ Sansaroâ€™â€™, â€˜â€˜Kadun auna chhuttiyanâ€™â€™, â€˜â€˜Uth meri gujriyeâ€™â€™, â€˜â€˜Fauziye di naarâ€™â€™, â€˜â€˜Paar uttre spahian di dereâ€™â€™, â€˜â€˜Disco mere Gaddiyaâ€™â€™, â€˜â€˜Ghare chukki paaniye jo jandiâ€™â€™, and â€˜â€˜Teri meri lagiyan preetan.â€
Sanjeev considers himself twice lucky for having been associated with music maestroes, including Virinder Bachchaâ€™â€™, Madan Shonki, Jyoti Bisht, Bulleh Shah and, of course, leading lyricists, like Surinder Paniyari and Balwant â€˜Bablooâ€™â€™. Sanjeev also feels proud of being associated with the top musical companies, including MCCI, Nagma, JMC, VMC, TM, Sham and, of course, T-series.
Sanjeev has been honoured for his significant contribution in the field by many associations, including the Sidh Baba Balak Nath Society, Noida and The Tribune Employees HP Helpline Co-operative Society at separate functions held from time to time.
