Join us in our humble attempt to pay homage to the bold and courageous poet, a lyricist par excellence, and a man known for following his heart - Dr. Rahat Indori. The torchbearer of Indian Poetry, Dr. Rahat Indori's words had the power to move masses and mountains. He carved his own way to success, neither bending his words nor his craft to please anyone.
It's our time to give back to the legend who gave words to our thoughts, songs to our tunes, voice to our dissent. Songdew brings to you an opportunity to be a part of this movement and pay tribute to the legendary poet and shayar. Here is your chance to compose one of his hand picked poems and take his writings to millions of people.
7 poems, 7 artists, 1 album and the 1 and only Dr. Rahat Indori. Songdew has conceptualised an idea to give flight to his words through music. The album is planned to be released on his birth anniversary, 1st January 2021.
Regarded as one of the finest and most quoted poets of our generation Dr. Rahat Indori was a Painter turned Professor, Poet, and then Hindi film Lyricist. A thorough gentleman, Dr. Rahat Indori is known for his poetic brilliance and absolute commitment to work.
From "Neend Churayi Meri" of "Mission Kashmir" to "Chori Chori" of "Kareeb" Dr. Rahat Indori wrote lyrics for Bollywood hits. He left Bollywood on the peak of his career because he was not happy when he was being told what to write and how to write. He wanted to give a voice to his thoughts, his feelings, and his emotions.
Undoubtedly, the best poet of our generation, Dr. Rahat Indori has been acclaimed Honour from Houston City Council, USA. His words resonated with the youth and the young at heart alike. He probably is the only shayar who took social media by storm through his words. Bulati Hai Magar Jaane Ka Nahi and Kisi Ke Baap Ka Hindustan Thodi Hai are hardly unknown to anyone.
