This is a compilation of 73 brilliant poems written by 5 different authors. What I also liked from this book is the presence of few paintings that were done by Shripad Bhalerao which has perfectly complimented the book.
I could clearly see the difference and variations of each poet as they brought out their best with their writing. While Uma has brought the best with the poems in Ladakh which I could very well connect with since I had been to the "Divine Paradise on Earth" myself, her poems on soldiers were equally a good one. I was glad after reading her poems since I shared a similar mindset.
Binod talked about mixed emotions whereas Trupti focused on melancholy(is what I feel). Shruti was at her best with her collection of poems where I liked "Why do we fall?" in particular. Saurin again brought out some brilliant reflections of his mind.
As a composer of poems myself, I felt really glad after going through different styles in composing a poem but with one motto "connect to the readers" which has worked really well in this beautiful compilation.
