These thirteen stories in this collection are Sujan Singh’s representative stories which gave a picture of the changing contemporary contexts of that time when Punjab was moving from villages to towns, from illiteracy to literacy and from superstition to scientific temper.

These stories record the tradition that took place in the social and moral values and I the psyche of the people. Variety of issues such as human survival and rehabilitation, women education, communal harmony, human relationship, feudalism and a new awakening among people to fight it, explicitly reveal Sujan Singh’s philosophy of life, his humanitarianism and progressive outlook.
