"Kab mile the kaha bichre the hame yaad nahi

zindagi tujh ko to bas khwaab mein dekha humne."

The above couplet more or less summarises and explains the title of the book "My Perceptions My Yearnings" The book is mainly compilation of her Facebook posts, which includes all subjects ranging from Socio Economic and Political issues, Comparative Religious study, History, all aided by her library of English and Urdu books.

One of the distinguishing feature of her book is that every post contains a contextual Urdu couplet with meaning of difficult words given in bracket and it is noteworthy that she has never consulted any book at time of writing, but the couplet comes naturally and effortlessly from her memory, which has also pleasantly surprised many.

The book also narrates the sweet, bitter experiences of the author and her struggle with the situations. Facing some severe constraints sometimes feeling utterly helpless and hopeless but nevertheless being tenacious and having FAITH SHE HAS CONTINUED TO FIND HER WAY. SO THE ULTIMATE LESSON TO BE LEARNT IS...DO YOUR BEST AND LEAVE REST TO GOD. AKIN TO THE PHILOSOPHY TADBEER AND TAQDEER very beautifully expressed by the lines of a very old BHAJAN.

"Ab sonp diya hai jeewan ka sab bhar tumhare haatho mein

hai jeet tumhare haatho mein aur haar tumhare haatho mein."
