Yet, he is known for his straightforwardness. Now read his ghazal:

मेरा ज़मीर, मेरा एतबार बोलता है
मेरी ज़बान से परवरदिगार बोलता है

तेरी ज़बान कतरना बोहत ज़रूरी है
तुझे मर्ज़ है कि तू बार बार बोलता है

कुछ और काम उसे आता ही नहीं शायद
मगर वोह झूट बोहत ही शानदार बोलता है

राहत इंदौरी

[*marz=disease, ailment, disorder]

Now read the same ghazal in Roman English script:

Mera zameer, mera etbaar boltaa hai
Meri zabaan se parvardigaar bolta hai

teri zabaan katarna bohat zaroori hai
tujhe marz hai ki tu baar baar bolta hai

kuchh aur kaam use aataa hi nahiiN shayad
magar voh jhooT bohat hi shaandaar bolta hai

Rahat Indori
