About the Book
It would be confusing to hear but a truth. I consider my mother as an unknown artist, no doubt she is purely illiterate but not less than a philosopher to me, she has made me insane for golden words she ever used to speak, infect those divine verses insisted me to write. Therefore I place my mother behind my inspiration…. love… you… my mother.
