From a very young age, Ravindra used to sing Bhajans at the nearby temples. To nurture their son’s talent, their parents enrolled him for formal training in classical music under the guidance of Janardhan Sharma, G.L. Jain and Nathuram.
Ravindra made a remarkable debut in Bollywood with the film Saudagar. The songs of the film became an instant hit and Sajna Hai Mujhe was the biggest hit song of the film. Ravindra was arguably one of the finest music directors of Bollywood during medieval ages. Some of his noted works include Saudagar, Chit Chor, Ram Teri Ganga Maili, Geet Gaata Chal and Vivah among several others. He was well-known for his long-term association with Rajshree Productions. He is best known for giving opportunities to budding singers like Hemlatha, K.J. Yesudas and various others. A maximum number of hits that Yesudas gave belonged to Ravinder Jain including his only Filmfare and National awards. He was known for his association with legendary singers like Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar. It has to be taken into consideration that Ravinderji is blind, yet achieved something which not many in this have and that is because of his sheer hard work and dedication. In addition to singing and composing, he also writes his own lyrics.
