He is a true paramour of people and poetic-writing. It may be said in the other words that he does not consider literary works as an amusement.

He is of the view that literary creativity is a serious job. It needs deep study of literary traditions, socio-political consciousness and spontaneous of vividness. The author of this book has himself that very ability and expertness which is unavoidable for a genuine writer.

His all works are the evidences of this fact. His all works are precious and praiseworthy. It is hoped that the book will be received with warmth of affection and zeal.
