Preface
I have immense pleasure to share with you a collection of poems, small and long, about life penned during 2013 by the way of this book. This book consists of 192 poems about life, contradictions, conflicts with relation to societies in a style suited to common people of all adults across the globe. Some of them much thought provoking and some for introspection. Almost all poems are in blank verse type and metric. I dedicate this book to my parents.
