Speaking on the occasion General V.P. Malik said that just like his earlier book, ‘Phoori’ ,Jatin’s words create an extraordinary imagery casting a mesmerizing glow on the tapestry of human experience. Each word is a brushstroke, delicately painting the canvas of sentiments with hues of intensity and vulnerability, which is a refreshing plunge into the reservoir of emotions, and an intimate journey which is both personal and universal, which would resonate with every reader he added.

Another celebrated Hindi writer and author of over 75 books, Dr. K.K.

He added that in the grand theater of life, each heartbeat is a cue, and we're all in the front row, waiting for the next scene. From birth to death, we are all waiting in hope of something to bloom in our life. He added that if we spend our whole life waiting for the storm, we will never enjoy the sunshine.
