The composition is a thematic music composition based in Manipuri folk music. While employing Pena as an instrument as versatile and capable as any other music instrument for all time to come, from traditional to modernity, from solo to orchestra and vice-versa, this composition is woven around the thread of silent and unspoken link of Pena with human life-cycle in Meitei tradition interwoven with the symbolic Heirangkhoi- a legendary fruit.
