· Few Iconic Songs of Kaviraj Shailendra :

• दिल की नज़र से, नज़रों की दिल से

• आवारा हूँ या गर्दिश में हूँ

• ओ सजना, बरखा बहार आई

• झूमती चली हवा याद आ गया कोई

• मुझे तुम से कुछ भी न चाहिये

• अजीब दास्तां है ये कहाँ शुरू कहाँ खतम

• पिया तोसे नैना लागे रे

• किसी की मुस्कुराहटों पे हो निसार

• आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
