Lokayat  organises Cultural Program to Celebrate:

SHAHIR AMAR SHEIKH BIRTH CENTENARY

Lokayat celebrates the Birth Centenary of Shahir Amar Sheikh on October 21, 2012. Shahir Amar Sheikh was a revolutionary folk singer and freedom fighter.

Born on October 20, 1916, he was active in the freedom struggle and went to jail many times. After India won freedom, he continued his activism and was active in the Goa Mukti Andolan and Sanyukta Maharashtra Movement. He was also active in the working class movement, and fought for the rights of the agricultural poor and factory workers.

But all the while, his dedication to shahiri continued, and he wrote and sung many songs which inspire people even today, many years after his death. Acharya Atre has aptly described Amar Sheikh as a living sum of fire, blaze, spirit and intoxication. Shahir Amar Sheikh breathed his last on August 29, 1969.
