The book’s author Zunayed, who’s also the vocalist of rock band Ashes, says, "Writing has been a habit since childhood. The sound that makes my ears deaf, I wanted to give a melody to that sound. I leave it to the readers whether I have successfully done it or not "
The story is about a writer named Shihab, whose writing is about converting illusion, delusion and hallucination into fiction. One day he tells his roommate Hasan to commit suicide. At one stage, a kind of agreement takes place between them. As a result, Hasan goes out of the house to buy ropes to commit suicide, but he comes back with an aquarium.
