Different political parties in the country are constraints to play political games only of alleging and incriminating each other, thereby averting and diverting the minds of the innocent public for misleading them from the main issues important for the public and the society at large just to remain in the power so captured. Up to this point, the author has no objection but his worries are more about the illegal and unnecessary entry of the politics in the non-essential areas and also for its rapid criminalization which is the main cause of the danger of spreading venom of hatred in society. Perhaps, the author expects more and more from the leaders and the authorities of the country, therefore, he becomes irritated even on the smaller mismanagements and irregularities who involuntarily start writing against the system and the prevailing Law & Order situation. His exasperation is quite apparently reflects from his poems. The author on the one hand writes about the sense of criminalization, malpractices, misdemeanor, and gimmickry in the society, on the other he is the conformable and assertor of nature’s beauty and the substances miraculously supplied by it to the exquisite human life on the earth. His indebtedness is also towards various colors, pleasures, sentiments and susceptibility of human life quite visible in his poetry.This is why the author has divided his this book into four parts based on the theme and context, which are: ‘उन्मुक्तता एवं विरक्ति’ (Unleashing & Nonchalance), ‘ऋतुराज – उत्सव काल’ (Spring Season – Festive Period), ‘प्रेम प्रसंग’ (Romance), and ‘विश्रान्ति’ (Relaxation).
