In this book Feza Azmi has focused exclusively on the injustices perpetrated on women since times immemorial. He has poured out the anguish of his wounded heart in these verses. The spontaneity and melodic rhythm of his poem make an instantaneous impact on the reader. The hallmark of Aazmi's expression is a cascading natural flow of ideas and words free of any artificiality. Feza has compared a mother's love to mellow dewdrops and the placid mystique of galaxies on distant horizons. According to him, if human beings are the crown of creation, a mother indisputably is the best of God's creation. This book of Feza Aazmi is a most effective exposition of the present society, in fact in every verse he illustrates the revolutionary, progressive and noble precepts Islam heralded and stands for but which due to the prevalent ignorance of the common Muslims have become subservient to the ancient and medieval practices of other religious societies, specially those of Christian church. This poem mirrors history, documents the present and envisages the future. Feza Aazmi indeed has fulfilled a critical social responsibility, which one is inclined to describe as a poetry of resistance.
