Rahat Indori Famous Shayri with Image
Bulati hai magar jane ka nai,
Wo duniya hai udhar jane ka nai.
Mai mar jaun to meri alag pehchan likh dena,
Lahu se meri peshani pe hindustan likh dena.
Ankh me pani rakho, hontho pe chingari rakho,
zinda rehna hai to tarkeebein bahut sari rakho.
Kisne dastak di, dil pe, ye kaun hai?
Aap to andar hain, bahar kon hai?
Jaban dil ki haqiqat ko kya bayan karti,
Kisi ka haal kisi se kaha nahi jata.
Ye hadsa to kisi din guzarne wala tha,
Mai bach bhi jata to ek roz marne wala tha.
Sabhi ka khoon shamil hai is mitti me,
Kisi ke baap ka hindustan thori hai.
Maine cheda to kis andaj se kaha,
Kuch sunoge meri jban se aaj.
Suraj, sitaare, chaand mere saath me rahe,
Jab tak tumhare haath mere haath me rahe,
Shaakhon se toot jaaye wo patte nahi hain hum,
Aandhi se koi keh deki aukaat me rahe
Aag ke paas kabhi mom ko laakar dekhoon
Ho izzazat to haath lagaakar dekhoon
Dil ka mandir bada veeran nazar aata hai
Sochta hoon teri tasveer lagakar dekhoon
Jhukne se rishta gehra ho toh jhuk jaao.
Par har baar aapko hi jhukna pare toh ruk jaao.
Bahut Guroor Hai Dariya Ko Apne Hone Par,
Jo Meri Pyaas Se Uljhe Toh Dhajjiyan Ud Jayein.
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.
Ab Na Main Hun, Na Baaki Hai Zamane Mere,
Fir Bhi MashHoor Hain Shaharon Mein Fasane Mere,
Zindagi Hai Toh Naye Zakhm Bhi Lag Jayenge,
Ab Bhi Baaki Hain Kayi Dost Puraane Mere.
Zubban to khol, najar to mila, jawaab to de,
Mai kitni baar luta hoon mujhe hisaab to de
Tere badan ki likhawat main hain utaar chadaav
Mai tujhe kaise padhunga mujhe kitaab to de..
Katl karne ki khuli choot hain ab bhi lekin
Pyaar mat karna, yaha pyaar pe pabandi hain
Meri saason mein samaaya bhi bahut lagta hain,
aur Wahi shaks paraya bhi bahut lagta hain
Usse milne ki tamanna bhi bahut hain
Lekin aane jane meinkiraaya bhi bahut lagta hain
Khoob hai shaq ka yeh pehlu
Mai bhi barbaad ho gya Aur tu bhi
Aate jaate hain koi rang mere chehre par,
Log lete hain maja jikr tumhara kar ke
Phulon ki dukaan kholo, khusbu ka byapaar karo
Ishq khata hain toh, ye khata ek baar nhi, sau baar karo
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
Rahat Indori Quotes
Kabhi dimaag, kabhi dil, kabhi nazar mein raho
Yeh sav tumhare hi ghar hain, kisi bhi ghar mein raho
Roz taaron ko numaish mein khalal padta hai
Chand paagal hai, andhere mein nikal padta hai
Beemar ko maraz ki dawa deni chahiye,
Mein peena chahta hoon, pila deni chahiye.
Hum apni jaan ke dushman ko jaan kehte hain
Mohabbat ki isi mitti ko Hindustan kehte hain
Ek hukumat hai jo inaam bhi de sakti hai
Ek Kalandar hai jo inkaar bhi kar sakta hai
