Life always carries the memories of various things that happened in the past and also experiences the happenings around on a daily basis. It is the very basic nature of human beings to express all that in certain forms of emotions. It could be a curse or boon, anger or happiness, pain or smile, disappointment or hope, frustration or many more others. In case one could transform his soul by enlarging his perceptions to that extent, where he can see life from multiple angles and could find a view point where he experiences all those things blissfully and express them beautifully, that would be the ultimate reception of life. This poetry is just about missing someone in every moment of one’s existence that it makes one doubt, who is holding whose breath.

His book Mann is a peep into human beings about how one carries their subconsciousness every moment of their life. Every human being is engulfed in a variety of emotions even in simple, ordinary events of life. Though he passes through the nuances of emotions such as pain, agony, suffering, affliction and discomfort, yet there is an intense longing for care and hope. These kaleidoscopic emotions ever seeking solace, care and hope are profoundly captured in poetry. Mann is a humble attempt in this direction.
