Hussain's debut poetry collection takes you on a journey to explore love itself, its many forms and facets, and the multitude of emotions that it takes us through. The poetry is as cathartic as reminiscent of times gone by, and the poet calls it an attempt to extract learning's from experiences. These experiences have been collected by the poet in his journey through life and the world we live in, and he examines love as a way of making sense of the world around us. The poems flowed from Hussain's pen just as easily as emotions do and he hopes that they flow into you with the same ease and resonate with the emotions in your heart. Influenced by the likes of Ghalib, Gibran and Rumi, writing about love comes naturally to Hussain and is expressed by means of English and Hindi-Urdu couplets that speak of love, loss, faith, hope, and many other facets of what the heart feels. Evoking strong visuals has always been Hussain’s forte and the rich, vivid descriptions in the poetry place you in the metaphor.
