They are basically forms of poems in Urdu and the people who do Shayari are called “Shayar”. There are some programs kept where people come and perform their shayaris when they are invited to do so. 

The audience listens to this poem and they say words like Waah which means Bravo to admire the Shayars. This whole setup is called Mushaira.

Some shayaris are used by motivational speakers to give motivation while some shayaris are done by our parents to taunt us and some that we use to confess our feelings to our loved ones. They can help to create an impact in the conversation and can help to influence one’s mind as well.
