About the book the author, Shaheed Hasan Pijush, said “This book is Premer Chhithi. The letters and poems here are written by me for my friends and some for personal use which was a long time back. Four years back I felt like publishing a calligraphic book with my poems which will be handwritten. Also writing about love is nothing new but the effort is what matters, like this book, where the calligraphy took a lot of my time and patience.”

Aniket Chattopadhyay, journalist and film director, said “Every Bengali, once in their lifetime will fall in love irrevocably and write a love letter, it is a special characteristic of a Bengali to write a poem, doesn’t matter if it’s good or not. Also, I had the privilege to read a book and it is definitely a piece of art which reflects how much effort and time it took to bring this book alive.”

The Indian edition of the book is published by Power Publishers, Kolkata.
