This book is about many unspoken words, questions and conflicts about values, tradition, modernity, love, sacrifice, rebellion, patience, ambition, etc., that she had in her mind being the eldest daughter of a middle-class family. She expresses these complex emotions and questions in simple words through her poems. She also takes up simple, seemingly mudane events and emotions and expresses them in depth in her poetry. Selections from a range of emotions expressed by her from her early ages have been compiled as Parag aur Pankhudiyaan, which the readers often feel as an expression of their own.

Loved each and every one of the poems
Through these poems, Seema Kumar has taken me to my childhood, my growing years and all those ups and downs in my life that I have faced till now. Her poems not only touch the hidden emotions in the hearts of the readers in a pleasing way, but also give them hope that at the end everything/events that happen to us is beautiful in their own rights and are part of our lives.
