Not just his work, Rahat Indori's life imparts a lesson that instils hope in times of despair. From facing financial struggles in his childhood to making a mark in the world of Urdu poetry, Rahat Indori has garnered national and international applause in his lifetime.

Now that he is gone, nothing can express the void that he has left in the world of poetry better than his shayaris, so we'll leave you with one.
