Rang Shayari

Life is colourful because there are colours around—colours that attract our eyes and colours that beckon our imagination. Poets have used colours in many ways—sometimes as simple colours while at others as metaphors. Here are some examples for you.

vo rañg utar ga.e jo utarne vaale the

tamam raat nahaya tha shahr barish mein

wo rang utar hi gae jo utarne wale the
