This volume is an English and Hindi translation of 'Tarkash', a highly successful book of Javed Akhtar's Urdu poems first published in 1995.

The poems contain the poet's reminiscences of his childhood, and bemoan the loss of its innocence with the passage of time. The poems are also about love ù its complications pains and even its joys. But even the simple love poems usually contain a much deeper message; it is upto the reader to explore the various levels of meaning for him or herself. There are also a number of lengthy philosophical poems where the poet asks simple questions to which the response remains a mystery
