Review:

"Gibran, the great Lebanese poet recounts a story of a pair of poems composed in the court of an ancient king: one of philosophical profundity and technical brilliance and other the ditty of a commonner. The former has been lost in the hoary past while the latter is recited even today. This book is a collection of vignettes of someone rooted in the soil of his ancestors with wings that traverse a global path. Often what stays in our minds are the quintessential human experiences of trust, understanding and loss...of what it means to be human..I have found this a compelling read. Though I confess, at times I was moved deeply and had to pause for reflection" - Reader review on Goodreads 
"After a very long time, I came across a good book which kept me hooked till the end. I got so engrossed after the first story, needless to say, every character came alive and I could feel each character which is an incredible effort on the author's part. What makes it more interesting is the fact that each story is related to our life and the characters are the ones which we come across so often making it all the more real and at the end of each story there is a take away! The compilation is excellent, a must read for all ages!" - Reader review on Amazon India 

"Seldom do you get a book which takes you back in time and makes you smile. This book is truly a work of a dreamer with a clear line of thought. The narrative evokes all sorts of emotions with each story, thereby making you enjoy every page. You can literally feel the emotions the author would have underwent while penning the stories. I would definitely encourage anyone who reads to buy this one!!" - Reader review on Amazon India
