TS Rangarajan better known as Kavignar Vaali, one of the most respected lyricists in the Tamil film industry, passed away on July 18.
He has written 10,000 songs in Tamil in the last 50 years and has worked with three generations of music directors right from MS Vishwanathan and Ilaiyaraja to AR Rahman.
Here, we take a look at his legacy albeit a small peep for it's hard to list our favourite Vaali songs as there really is no end to it. But we've a put together a compilation where the words made the music.
We also look forward to hearing about the songs that made an impression on you. Leave your tributes in the comments section below.
