Ek Phool, Anek Patra (Single Flower, Myriad Petals)
This song lyrics collection contains 90 songs, of which most have now been recorded. Based on subject matter, the songs can be classified as patriotic, romantic, tragic, pessimistic, optimistic, absurd, progressive, existentialistic and others about social issues. Although many meters have been used in the songs, it is dominated mostly by the use of syllabic meters. The use of image, symbol, wordplay and figurative language in the songs is excessive. Due to the use of simple expressions and meaningful emotions, the songs are easy to understand, but generally put across various meanings when considered at different layers.
