When I read the first chapter of this book, I thought to myself - what I am reading? This book is not for everyone - rather this book is for nature lovers, for those who want to set themselves in some legacy or different league. In a nutshell, the book will instantly appeal to people who are pure at heart and always compassionate towards animals and birds.
Sunil Bhatia is a creative person - and it is quite evident in this book. The narrator of the book is a young guy living in a city, well he converses with the species of birds. For this reason, I liked this book very much. Through the birds, this guy comes to know that what is going wrong in his life. The book overall takes a positive stance on retrospection and we humans need it from time to time.
Another special point of this book is that the second part contains some mind-pleasing poems. They are separated category wise and I loved the way he points out the flaws in the world through these innocent poems. In fact, the author should write more and more poems.
Overall, the book is a treat to all sort of readers.
Bhatia's whimsical look at metro Mumbai
An invigorating bunch of tales centred around every day creatures through whose eyes the writer views life. Full of humour and an underlying sensitivity that he finds in the animal and bird world and which he feels is fast diminishing in the human world . A very interesting take on life.

Aryan Sarath's review

it was amazing
The book is certainly one of its kind because having read hundreds of books and reviewed many of them, I was pleasantly surprised when I read this book. The book has many protagonists including that of the author where he indulges in conversations with various birds at various point of time.
Yes. He converses(imaginary) with Pigeon, Parrot, Owl, Swan, Sparrow, Crow, Nightingale, Peacock, Vulture, Falcon, Duck, Rooster, Hen, Hummingbird and Bat. He also converses with Copper Fish. Don't you see the uniqueness in the concept?
The story begins with missing pigeon and then diverts to missing Peacock Jr and what happens to them has been excellently narrated in this story with series of events where the author meets up with various birds with each one giving him a teaching/lesson about life. I would rather say that this is an inspirational/motivational book because I was feeling really before I started reading this book but when I finished reading it, my confidence level shot up really high.
This would surely be liked by the kids and is applicable even for the elders and when I finished reading 21 chapters, I got another pleasant surprise with Book of Poems(Part 1) which has poems classified under 10 sectors that includes Mystical,Love, Fantasy Story, Self, Dark, Spiritual, Inspirational, Observational, Humor and Futuristic poem.
I must say that this book will be an excellent read that would satiate your reading desires...
