The stories in this collection capture Tagore's deep understanding of human nature and his interest in humanity. They explore social issues like dowry and the emotions of the minority community, psychological feelings of guilt and fear, and social themes like desire to have a son.

Descriptions of nature and natural beauty form the backdrop to every story. Some are set in Kolkata and some have a rural background with one story set in far-away Kashmir. Many have a historical background. The collection contains translation of Mukut, Thakurda, Bicharak, Pratihingsha, Putro Joggo, Matermoshai and so on.
