Naraz Rahat Indori’s identity has many citations – He is a master of colors and lines, a literary maestro in college, a lyricist for the film Maqbool, and Har Dil Aziz is also a famous poet. I am also an eyewitness to the inner and outer dilemma of man. All aspects of Rahat’s personality are reflected in the allusions and symbols of his ghazals. The collective nature of his poetry is rebellious and satirical, which is often a survey and analysis of situations through ghazals.
