“जो आज साहिबे मसनद हैं कल नहीं होंगे
किराएदार हैं ज़ाती मकान थोड़ी है

सभी का ख़ून है शामिल यहां की मिट्टी में
किसी के बाप का हिन्दोस्तान थोड़ी है”

“बुलाती है मगर जाने का नईं
वो दुनिया है उधर जाने का नईं

है दुनिया छोड़ना मंज़ूर लेकिन
वतन को छोड़ कर जाने का नईं

जनाज़े ही जनाज़े हैं सड़क पर
अभी माहौल मर जाने का नईं

सितारे नोच कर ले जाऊंगा
मैं ख़ाली हाथ घर जाने का नईं

मिरे बेटे किसी से इश्क़ कर
मगर हद से गुज़र जाने का नईं

वो गर्दन नापता है नाप ले
मगर ज़ालिम से डर जाने का नईं

सड़क पर अर्थियां ही अर्थियां हैं
अभी माहौल मर जाने का नईं

वबा फैली हुई है हर तरफ़
अभी माहौल मर जाने का नईं”

“ज़ुबां तो खोल, नज़र तो मिला, जवाब तो दे
मैं कितनी बार लुटा हूं, मुझे हिसाब तो दे”

“लोग हर मोड़ पे रुक रुक के संभलते क्यों हैं
इतना डरते हैं, तो घर से निकलते क्यों हैं”

“शाखों से टूट जाएं, वो पत्ते नहीं हैं हम
आंधी से कोई कह दे कि औकात में रहे”

“एक ही नदी के हैं ये दो किनारे दोस्तों
दोस्ताना ज़िंदगी से, मौत से यारी रखो”

“प्यास तो अपनी सात समंदर जैसी थी
नाहक हमने बारिश का एहसान लिया”

we will miss you sir .#RIP RAHAT INDORI
