We all are truly travellers. Throughout our life we travel through different phases and places, different notions and emotions, different roles and goals. Throughout this journey we pick experiences that shape us as a person. Musafir is collection of such experiences, learnings and memories expressed as poems. Few poems also present emotions of simple objects that are used daily but we don't pay attention to them as we consider them lifeless however we forget these objects are also traveling through different shapes and role, and similar to us and they too are a Musafir.
