This is a collection of poems ranging from philosophical thoughts to most ordinary incidents of our daily life. Most of the poems are dominated by a tortured psyche of the poet. Quite a few are simply musings on life; meditative and halcyon. The poems deal with matters of everyday life including an acute concern for disease, decay and death. It is all about the great lessons we all experience while journeying through life.All the poems in this collection are gems of wisdom. There isn’t any poem or even a line which doesn’t impart a message or value. As the function of poetry is to instruct and delight, the poet succeeds in both through the lofty themes and rhythmic lines.
