Rahat Indori

Safar Ki Had Hai Vahaan Tak Ke

Safar Ki Had Hai Vahaan Tak Ke Kuch Nishaan Rahe
Chale Chalo Ke Jahaan Tak Ye Aasmaan Rahe
Ye Kyaa Uthaaye Qadam Aur Aa Gai Manzil
Mazaa To Jab Hai Ke Pairon Mein Kuch Thakan Rahe
Vo Shakhs Mujh Ko Koi Jaalsaaz Lagataa Hai
Tum Us Ko Dost Samajhate Ho Phir Bhi Dhyaan Rahe
Mujhe Zamin Ki Geharaaion Ne Daab Liyaa
Main Chaahataa Thaa Mere Sar Pe Aasmaan Rahe
Ab Apane Bich Maraasim Nahin Adaavat Hai
Magar Ye Baat Hamaare Hi Darmiyaan Rahe
Magar Sitaaron Ki Faslen Ugaa Sakaa Na Koi
Meri Zamin Pe Kitane Hi Aasmaan Rahe
Vo Ek Savaal Hai Phir Us Kaa Saamanaa Hogaa
Duaa Karo Ke Salaamat Meri Zabaan Rahe

Peshaaniyon Pe Likhe Muqaddar

Peshaaniyon Pe Likhe Muqaddar Nahin Mile
Dastaar Kahaan Milenge Jahaan Sar Nahin Mile
Aavaaragi Ko Dubate Suraj Se Rabt Hai
Magrib Ke Baad Ham Bhi To Ghar Par Nahin Mile
Kal Aa_inon Kaa Jashn Huaa Thaa Tamaam Raat
Andhe Tamaash_binon Ko Patthar Nahin Mile
Main Chaahataa Thaa Khud Se Mulaaqaat Ho Magar
Aaine Mere Qad Ke Baraabar Nahin Mile
Pardes Jaa Rahe Ho To Sab Dekhate Chalo
Mumkin Hai Vaapas Aao To Ye Ghar Nahin Mile

Masjidon Ke Sahan Tak

Masjidon Ke Sahan Tak Jana Bahut Dushvaar Thaa
Der Se Nikalaa To Mere Raaste Mein Daar Thaa
Apane Hi Phailaao Ke Nashe Mein Khoyaa Thaa Darakht
Aur Har Masum Tahani Par Phalon Kaa Baar Thaa
Dekhate Hi Dekhate Shaharon Ki Raunaq Ban Gayaa
Kal Yahi Cheharaa Thaa Jo Har Aaine Pe Baar Thaa
Sab Ke Dukh Sukh Us Ke Chehare Pe Likhe Paaye Gaye
Aadami Kyaa Thaa Hamaare Shahar Kaa Akhabaar Thaa
Ab Mohalle Bhar Ke Daravaazon Pe Dastak Hai Nasib
Ek Zamaanaa Thaa Ke Jab Main Bhi Bahut Khuddaar Thaa
Kaagazon Ki Sab Siyaahi Baarishon Mein Dhul Gai
Ham Ne Jo Sochaa Tere Baare Mein Sab Bekaar Thaa

Har Ek Chehare Ko Zakhmon

Har Ek Chehare Ko Zakhmon Kaa Aainaa Na Kaho
Ye Zindagi To Hai Rahamat Ise Sazaa Na Kaho
Na Jaane Kaun Si Majaburiyon Kaa Qaidi Ho
Vo Saath Chhod Gayaa Hai To Bevafaa Na Kaho
Tamaam Shahar Ne Nezon Pe Kyun Uchhaalaa Mujhe
Ye Ittefaaq Thaa Tum Is Ko Haadasaa Na Kaho
Ye Aur Baat Ke Dushman Huaa Hai Aaj Magar
Vo Meraa Dost Thaa Kal Tak Use Buraa Na Kaho
Hamaare Aib Hamen Ungaliyon Pe Ginvaao
Hamaari Pith Ke Pichhe Hamen Buraa Na Kaho
Main Vaqiyaat Ki Zanjir Kaa Nahin Qaayal
Mujhe Bhi Apane Gunaahon Kaa Silsilaa Na Kaho
Ye Shahar Vo Hai Jahaan Raakshas Bhi Hai “Rahat”
Har Ek Taraashe Huye But Ko Devataa Na Kaho

Cheharon Ki Dhup Aankhon Ki

Cheharon Ki Dhup Aankhon Ki Geharaai Le Gayaa
Aainaa Saare Shahar Ki Binaai Le Gayaa
Dube Huye Jahaaz Pe Kyaa Tabsaraa Karen
Ye Haadasaa To Soch Ki Geharaai Le Gayaa
Haalaanki Bezubaan Thaa Lekin Ajib Thaa
Jo Shakhs Mujh Se Chhin Ke Goyaai Le Gayaa
Is Vaqt To Main Ghar Se Nikalane Na Paaungaa
Bas Ek Kamiz Thi Jo Meraa Bhaai Le Gayaa
Jhute Qaside Likhe Gaye Us Ki Shaan Men
Jo Motiyon Se Chhin Ke Sachchaai Le Gayaa
Yaadon Ki Ek Bhid Mere Saath Chhod Kar
Kyaa Jaane Vo Kahaan Meri Tanhaai Le Gayaa
Ab Asad Tumhaare Liye Kuchh Nahin Rahaa
Galiyon Ke Saare Sang To Saudaai Le Gayaa
Ab To Khud Apani Saansen Bhi Lagati Hain Bojh Si
Umron Kaa Dev Saari Tavanaai Le Gayaa

Aankh Pyaasi Hai Koi Manzar De

Aankh Pyaasi Hai Koi Manzar De
Is Jazire Ko Bhi Samandar De
Apanaa Cheharaa Talaash Karanaa Hai
Gar Nahin Aainaa To Patthar De
Band Kaliyon Ko Chaahiye Shabanam
In Chiraagon Men Roshani Bhar De
Pattharon Ke Saron Se Karz Utaar
Is Sadi Ko Koi Payambar De
Kahkahon Men Guzar Rahi Hai Hayaat
Ab Kisi Din Udaas Bhi Kar De
Phir Na Kahanaa Ke Khudkhushi Hai Gunaah
Aaj Fursat Hai Faisalaa Kar De

There is peace in my soul
For such a long awaited time
There is love in my life
A love of melody and rhyme.

Once you took hold of my heart
I knew no other could have reached
As whispered fate took my hand
To levels only you could reach.

You are the soul of my soul
The sea of my heart
The man of my dreams
I can never part.

For only once in a lifetime
Could take hold so fast
What is meant to be
Of a love so vast.

You in my life
Will live eternally.
I knew the first night we met
You were meant for me.

Everywhere I go your smile is there
When I think of you the stars overhead are bright
My love for you kindles even in the darkness of night.

When I dream the moon beams down your name
And when you're not around my heart aches for you.

You enchant me with your eyes
The sound of your voice makes all my dreams come true.

You are my heart's delight; it burns ever so bright
Every time I try to resist you
I just realize my love for you is true.

I search for you every chance I get,
I always long to see your face.

If I could touch your lips with mine,
The thought of this is so divine.

I want to feel you, touch, and kiss,
send you into a heavenly bliss,
I want you, need you, love you.

 As far as the ocean is wide
through miles and miles of sea;
You will be someone special
a true miracle to me.

As high upon the mountain tops
as high as one can climb;
You will be so dear to me
the best friend I can find.

As many stars that twinkle
throughout the heavens above;
You will be a a bright reminder
of what it means to love.

Put your hand in mine now and forever

Darling, here I stand, stand before you

Deep inside I always knew

It was you, you and me

Two hearts drawn together bound by destiny

Every road leads to your door

Every step I take forever more ...

Oh, sweet love.

Like a dream
We were standing together face to face

Like a dream
You were holding me close and my heart began to race

Like a dream
Our eyes met and the world seemed to disappear

Like a dream
We began to dance to music only we could hear

Like a dream
You brushed my cheek and trace my lips tenderly

Like a dream
Our lips met and we kissed passionately

Like a dream
I was with you and I didn't have a care

Like a dream
We shared something only you and I could share

I long to hear your whisper
Silent in my heart they whimper

Gentle echoes that they are
Of which you are least aware

I hear the whispers of the wind
I see the stars shine in the sky

But, none feels like your whispers
Or matches the star shining in your eye

It sways ardent breeze of harmony
Each word is wrapped in rhapsody.

At times when wind blows through trees
Do I pause and listen to its passing?

I feel your voice brushing me
The gentle warmth touching me
I hear the tenderness of your voice
That fills the spectrum of my soul.

Your Vibes, I feel when you're near me.
Your breath, I feel tickling me, on my ears

Whisper gently in my ear, a simple whisper
A whisper that speaks louder than words

Into my ears, flow the whispers of love
Whispers, the speech of tireless lips

I long to hear forever, your sweet whisper
Like laughing water, a music to my ears

The soothing words that fall
Smooth from out your lips

On my heart, it pours and lands softly
Dewdrops they are, on my finger tips

The mischievous glow in your eyes
Which I always long to see forever

The ecstasy I see in your eyes, to which
Myself and my desires, I give

Standing still, I gaze into the twin pools
Count your eyelashes, Measure your breath

How I wish, I could taste the honey
Of your maidenly breath

I wonder whether you stare at me
Could that be connected with mine

Eyes to eyes share a story, gather flowers
Share the fragrance, share the music

Open your heart, gently close your eyes and see
There appears a face, in the space in your heart

I will hold you there, I swear, in your dreams
In the warmth of desire, with a gentle embrace

In a soft embrace, Heads on shoulders
We entwine, you are mine forever

Capture my heart with your passion
Tickle and whisper softly in my ears

Your voice, my love, I will listen
In my heart, it always whispers.

Come with me, be with me Forever
And Always, Let me Love You.

I could walk a thousand miles,
Just to see your perfect smiles.
Although I see what they don't,
They are missing what I won't.
My love will always stay pure and clear,
For your the one I do not fear.
Forever and always I'll stay strong,
For you my dear you are my bond.

Through clouds above and stars beyond,
My love, the thing I'm always fond,
Will stick with you forever end,
Our heart and soul will always blend.
While people might think were playing pretend
We will stand to defend
Your in my mind your in my heart,
Nothing can ever break us apart.

Combined as one,
Our life, Our Love 
Will Love Forever.
 Love is enigma, Love is divine, Love is the cure, but the infection to those blind. Love is pure, love is undefined, Love is beyond just a feeling, surely love is undermined.
Love is many heart beats, but its rhythm the same, For love is the light through dark streets, it has no image or name. Love is bright, love is light, Love is just, love is life.

I sat down beside him, not thinking he'd see.
Once I was settled, his eyes were on me.
Piercing my soul, my heart and my brain.
I was totally speachless, I could not meet his gaze.

My heart started racing, was he just playing games?
His eyes were so warm, they took my breath away.
As the minutes ticked by, I wanted him more.
I still couldn't look up, my eyes locked on the floor ...

No-one can tear us apart
I love you with all of my heart
More than the moon
More than the stars
Longing forever to be where you are
Coz I love you with all of my heart.

No-one can tear us apart
I feel sad and blue
"Only" dreaming of you
For your love is the joy of my heart.


India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world.

Indian history and culture is full of richness and affluence, which undoubtedly has had a significant impact on the evolution of the current society. Home to the Indus Valley civilization and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian history is identified with its commercial and cultural wealth over the past thousands of years. Four major world religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism originated here, while Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Islam and Christianity arrived in the first millennium AD and mingled into the region's diverse culture. India became a modern nation-state in 1947 after a struggle for independence that was marked by widespread nonviolent resistance. The history of India can be divided into four major segments, the ancient era, the medieval era, the modern era and the post-independence era.

The hallmark of Indian history dates back to the stone age with paintings at the Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka in Madhya Pradesh. These paintings symbolise the earliest known traces of human life in India. The first known permanent settlements appeared over 9,000 years ago and gradually developed into the Indus Valley Civilization, dating back to 3300 BCE in western India. It was followed by the Vedic Civilization, which laid the foundations of Hinduism and other cultural aspects of early Indian society. From around 550 BCE, many independent kingdoms and republics known as the Mahajanapadas were established across the country.

The empire built by the Maurya dynasty under Emperor Ashoka united most of South Asia in the third century BCE. From 180 BCE, a series of invasions from Central Asia followed, including those led by the Indo-Greeks, Indo-Scythians, Indo-Parthians and Kushans in the north-western Indian subcontinent. From the third century CE, the Gupta dynasty oversaw the period referred to as "The Golden Age" of Indian history. Among the notable South Indian empires were the Chalukyas, Rashtrakutas, Hoysalas, Pallavas, Pandyas, and Cholas. Science, engineering, art, literature, astronomy, and philosophy flourished under the patronage of these kings. Paintings at the Ajanta Caves in Aurangabad, Maharashtra were made in the 6th century.

A number of invasions from Central Asia between the tenth and twelfth centuries is an important landmark in history of India, as much of north India came under the rule of the Delhi Sultanate, and later the Mughal dynasty. Mughal emperors gradually expanded their kingdoms to cover large parts of the subcontinent. Nevertheless, several indigenous kingdoms, such as the Vijayanagara Empire, flourished, especially in the south. In the seventeenth and eighteenth century, the Mughal supremacy declined and the Maratha Empire became the dominant power. From the sixteenth century, several European countries, including Portugal, Netherlands, France, and the United Kingdom, started arriving as traders and later took advantage of the fractious nature of relations between the kingdoms to establish colonies in the country.

The first half of the twentieth century is an important period in the history of India, as a nationwide struggle for independence was launched by the Indian National Congress and other political organizations. Led by Mahatma Gandhi, and displaying commitment to ahimsa, or non-violence, millions of protesters engaged in mass campaigns of civil disobedience. Finally, on 15 August 1947, India gained independence from British rule, but was partitioned, in accordance with the wishes of the Muslim League, along the lines of religion to create the Islamic nation-state of Pakistan. Three years later, on 26 January 1950, India became a republic and a new constitution came into effect.

The history of India is a mingle between the East and the West. India has always been an invader's paradise, while at the same time its natural isolation and magnetic religions allowed it to adapt to and absorb many of the peoples who penetrated its mountain passes. No matter how many Persians, Greeks, Chinese nomads, Arabs, Portuguese, Britishers and other raiders had their way into this great country, many of them merged into the society giving rise to a country full of diversity in terms of culture, religion, language and architecture.
