Here are Some Shayari by Rahat Indori
Kabhi akele mein milkar jhinjod dunga usse,
Jaha jaha se woh toota hain jod dunga usse
Mujhe woh chhor gya yeh kamaal hain uska,
Irrada maine kiya tha ki chhod dunga usse.
Haath khaali hain tere shahar se jaate jaate
Jaan hoti to meri jaan lutaate jaate
Ab to har haath ka patthar hamein pahchanta hai
Umar gujari hai tere shahar mein aate jaate
Na humsafar na kisi hum- nasheen se niklega,
Hamare paanv ka kaanta hamin se niklega.
