The present collection of Kailash Bahukhandi has 60 poems in this present collection of varied subjects and nature.
There are poems about memorizing hills of Garhwal those Kailash left for years. There are poems of varied subjects as preaching, social awareness about alcoholism etc, philosophy, love, poverty, struggle for economic stability, various seasons and changing struggle, images of seasons in hills. The poet also wrote satirical poems too and those pierce the wrongs.

The language is simple and easily digestible by common readers.
Kailash uses Garhwali words those create desirable images in the readers mind.
