The book is mainly a compilation of poems and short stories. Once when he was asked about what inspired him to start writing he said that the untold emotions of the human soul and the beauty of his city which lies in the foothills of the Himalayas. But this journey of his was never easy he too faced a lot of problems in his way like every other person steeping towards success does. Once in an interview, he said that whenever he said to anyone that he wanted to publish a book someday, everybody laughed at him and stated that to be impossible at such an age. He also added that once in a party two of his close friends made fun of him regarding this, he didn’t say anything that time he just smiled and left the place and decided not to say anyone anything about this dream of his until he achieved it but soon within one year, he replied them not with words but with work. Only his parents, his grandpa, a few of his teachers and two, three friends of his supported him and had faith in his dreams. One sad fact about this journey of Srijit is even after fulfilling his dream and proving many people wrong, he failed to fulfill his long-awaited desire.
