All of the poems will attract the mind of the readers.
We find many things like happiness, sadness, spleen, grief, gloom, sorrow, animosity, melancholy as well as humanity in his poems. In his poem named Sareer Aachol, he compared the beauty of the country with the margin of the saree which women wear. He cannot move his eyes and cannot blink it for a second to miss this view. Humanism is also seen in his poetry. He wrote several poems for the humanity. We see he wrote poems named Manobsebay Broti Je Jon, Monusotto, Banbhasider Jibon where we find his inner feelings for the people of our society and the humanity. He also wrote Shantir Barta Arakane, Aami Rohingya and Arakaner Sadhinota for the most talked contemporary Rohingya issues. There he criticized about the world politics and demanded justice for the deprived Rohingya community.
We see patriotism in his poetry. He also showed the beauty of nature in his poetry. He wrote several poems describing the nature of our beautiful country. He wrote poems about different seasons which give us different tastes. Love, separation, huffs are also found in his poems. But we see his inner pain about his beloved. In his poem named Jibon Sayanho, he indicates his love to his beloved who rejected poet's love. In his other love poems, he also described about the feelings and the behaviors of love. Along with love, the poet dealt with several useful topics in this book. His thinking and imaginations are very universal.
Poet used many imageries, metaphors as well as allegories to clear his thought. His selections of the words are very delicate and tasteful. He used lucid dictions which we use in our everyday life. His sentences are very simple and short but symbolic and meaningful. I hope his universal thoughts and expressions will amaze us and all the readers will enjoy the book.
