This book is a small effort to bring out those evils which are still governing our modern society. It is a collection of 62 poems which predominantly talk of the relationship between human and the nature. It talks of the unethical works of the modern society towards the ecology. A few poems in it do have a little bit philosophical touch which opens our inner eyes to meet the truth of the life from which we are very far away, today. It also talks about the importance of the legends which we have completely denied from the society. Overall, this book has tried to cover the every aspect of the human life; especially, the human unconsciousness towards the nature.
