A Famous poet Dr. Rahat Indori passed away in Indore at 5 pm on Tuesday. He suffered a Cardiac arrest in the evening and died.
He had corona infection and kidney inflammation in both lungs.
The 70-year-old poet passed away at Indore’s Aurobindo Hospital a day after testing positive for coronavirus. His corona report was positive, so he was admitted to the hospital on the advice of doctors.
Information about getting infected with Corona was tweeted by Rahat Indori himself with his fans and had urged them to pray for his speedy recovery. “After initial symptoms of COVID-19, my corona test was done yesterday which came out positive. Pray that I defeat this disease as soon as possible”, Indori said in his last post.
Bollywood celebrities have expressed grief over the demise of the poet.
Earlier this year, his poem “Bulati hai Magar jane ka Nahi” went viral on social media, rendering him a sensation among the youth. With a 50-year career in poetry, Indori was known for the lyrics of songs like M Bole Toh from Munnabhai MBBS (2003), Chori Chori Jab Nazrein Mili from Kareeb (1998), Koi Jaye to le aye from Ghatak (1996), and Neend Churai Meri from Ishq (1997).
After the news went viral, an appeal was made to his Twitter account that people should pray for the peace of Rahat Sahab’s soul from their homes.
With the last breath, he has now become a “जमींदार”. In fact, during the long period of poetry, he once said –
कश्ती तेरा नसीब चमकदार कर दिया, इस पार के थपेड़ों ने उस पार कर दिया।
दो गज सही ये मेरी मिलकियत तो है, ऐ मौत तूने मुझे जमींदार कर दिया।
