Blurb (as on Amazon):
What’s life? It’s a garden of fragility. Nothing is permanent – be it murkiness, nothingness or happiness. Life is meant to take you through various paths during its journey, and you are ultimately meant to enjoy treading on them – for it is after all a garden and gardens are known for their fragrance. “The Garden of Fragility” is a collection of fifty poems written by Limca Book of Records Holder, Neelam Saxena, that make you understand the different facets of life.

And in the milieu, spread fragrance!
