She wrote, “Mujhe abhi pata chala ki dil ko chunewale geet likhnewale kavi Yogesh ji ka aaj swargwas hua. Ye sunke mujhe bahut dukh hua.Yogesh ji ke likhe kai geet maine gaaye. Yogesh ji bahut shaant aur madhur swabhav ke insan the. Main unko vinamra shraddhanjali arpan karti hun (( I just came to know about demise of Yogesh, who wrote soulful songs. I am sad to know about his death. I have sung the songs written by him. He was a calm person. I pay my respect him.)”

Yogesh started his career by writing six songs for his first film and later went on to write for more films like Chhoti Si Baat (1976), Baton Baton Mein (1979), Manzil (1979), Rajnigandha (1974) and many more. He also wrote for television shows like Chandrakanta, Hasratein, Thoda Hai Thode Ki Zaroorat Hai and Gudgudee.

His last big film was Bewafa Sanam, which released in 1995. He also penned a few songs for the 2006 release Prateeksha, but it failed to make a mark at the box office.

May his soul rest in peace!
