Where were you when the MIG 21 crashed in the fields? What were you doing when crimes were committed against children in a suburb of Delhi? How did you feel when you were a child, running around in the rain? Where were you when the country wanted you to exercise your right to vote? When did you not trouble your mother for the homework? How did you feel when the one you loved the most thought otherwise? What do you do when the prices rise? How did you feel when you reached the office after a long journey from home? There are many such questions that this book of poetry tries to answer. Everything, animate or inanimate, has its own lyric. And every lyric has its own lyricist. This collection of poems tries to explore subjects ranging from a burning candle to our inability to use our right of franchise when it matters the most.
