A person who once lent his voice to a very famous Punjabi movie, ‘Tera Mera ki Rishta’s song, Zindgi de rang sajjna ajj hor te kal nu hor is now is now waging a war of survival against disease and poverty.

Idu Sharif is a living legend who promoted the Dhadi genre and will remain a gold chapter in the pages of the history of Punjabi Folk Singing. He was once a recipient of Sangeet Natak Akademi and other awards is now fighting a formidable battle for survival in his sunset years.

It was the beginning of his journey in the dark lane after his sunset. He suffered a paralytic stroke in 2011. After this, he suffered three more strokes leaving him bed-ridden and without a voice.

“Likheya jo lekhan wich aa Ohio kujh milda

Ohdi marzi ton bina patta vi nahin milda

Likheya jo lekhan wich Ohio kujh milda

Ohdi marzi ton bina patta vi nahin milda

Daate hath hai,Daate hath hai,

Daate hath hai sabh di dor

Zindgi de rang sajjna ajj hor te kal nu hor

Zindgi de rang sajjna”- Tera Mera Ki Rishta
