A special commemorative postal stamp on Pt Kavi Pradeep, a noted poet whose songs played a major role during the country's freedom struggle, was released by President Smt Pratibha Patil on Sunday. The President  launched the stamp on December 11 at a simple function in Amravati, Maharashtra, in the presence of Law Minister Salman Khurshid and Minister of State for Communication and Information Technology Sachin Pilot. It is the first step towards the preparation for Pt Kavi Pradeep's centenary celebrations which falls on February 6, 2015, Avinash Pande, Chairman of Kavi Pradeep Foundation, said .

The poet, originally known as Ramchandra Naryanji Dwivedi, was born in Badnagar in Ujjain district in Madhya Pradesh and had a passion for writing and rendering Hindi poetry. His songs like 'Aj Himalay ki choti se phir hamne lalkara hai...door hato ae duniyawalon hindustan hamara hai' played a crucial role in the country's freedom struggle. Kavi Pradeep also penned a song in tribute to soldiers who died in 1962 Sino-Indian War and was also a towering figure in Hindi cinema. During his film career spanning nearly five decades, Kavi Pradeep penned lyrics for 72 films like Bandhan (1940) and Jai Santoshi Ma (1975).
