The book is yet another masterpiece from Adfar whose previously authored work ‘Alchemy of Light’ the Urdu and English rendering of the verses of Sheikh-ul-Alam was highly regarded as well.

That book was undoubtedly a pearl box of about 350 verses; the original Kashmiri Kalam followed by Urdu text and then the English translation. The selections in verified form explain the range and depth of the poet.

Readers appreciated Adfar’s work and said he deserved felicitation as he had dived deep into the kalam and brought to fore the essence of the kalam in lucid both in Urdu and English.
