The Land of Seasons and Songs is a flower basket of humor, acquainting with cultures and traditions and presenting logical discourses. It is recollection of the yesteryears with observations. It is a book of criticisms, punches, and reformative doses. The book reviews the present-day ills of the society and describes the culture de-grand of the subcontinent of India. It describes of its kings, feudalism, and genius of the peoples, and it sheds light on the world divisive politics as and when it deviates from the path of peace. It draws attention to the excellences of poetry that is a naturally flourishing trait in the subcontinent of India. The book presents the picture of India under the British rule and remembers of British with affection. The book is written in vivid English, and the profession of the book is eulogy of the pious and pleasing the soul of the reader.
The central character of the book is Bachchu Yarwah Aekkewan—the horse and cart driver. With his peculiarities of commands, he generates to control his horse on the road, and his life as he leads in his village gives an insight into the Indian-ology—the Indian colloquialism of the region he lives in.
The thoughts picked for the book are from the observations as factual as the fall of snow:
It is snowing outside
Grass and ground are white
Birds have only branches to peg on
Or fly across to unknown bites
This is nature; it has made everything quiet
The men don’t walk; dogs not out to stride
Unless you are secure in shelter will die
End of world but will not come; time will continue to ride
Sayed Athar Husain
