An interesting take on the concept of Self and the City, this book highlights the less talked about topics about the city of, Patna, Bihar. It is well structured and there is a play in the form. Every topic is widely researched on, and paramount importance is given to the words chosen. It starts from the glorious age of the city, then delving into crime infuriated past, and later talks about the rotting present and future. It is a small 5x5 size book consisting of three diary entries and eighteen poems in the form of epitaphs.
