Here are some famous poems by the 'Padma Bhushan' laureate

Madhushala

Madiralaya jane ko ghar se

Chalta hai peene wala

Kis path se jaun?

Asmanjas mein hai who bhola-bhaala

Alag-alag path batlaate sab,

Par main yah batlaata hun-

Raah pakad tu ek chala chal,

Paa jayega madhushala

Agnipath

Tu na thakega kabhi,

Tu na thamega kabhi,

Tu na mudega kabhi,

Kar shapath, kar shapath, kar shapath,

Agnipath, agnipath, agnipath

Ruke Na Tu

Dhanush utha, prahaar kar

Tu sabse pehla vaar kar

Agni si dhadhak-dhadhak

Hiran si sajag-sajag

Singh si dahaad kar

Shankh si pukaar kar

Ruke na tu, thake na tu

Jhuke na tu, thame na tu

Vishwa Sara So Raha Hai

Hain vicharte swaon sunder,

Kintu inka sang tajkar,

Vyom-vyaapi shoonyata ka

Kaun saathi ho raha hai?

Vishwa saara so raha hai
