About the Book:
The essence of love, romance, and the nature is the basic ingredient of a sensitive soul. This forms the basis of art. Art which defines the infinity of limitations. And that,s all what Sahir talks about in his book. The name is unique. Choog means the first grains of diet which a bird brings for its infants. This book plays the same because keeping the first step at initials of senses and moving towards infinity is what Sahir speaks.

This is what me being a rational blogger can speak about. Rest lies with reader because he/she is free to make any opinion about the content of the book. 

It has been published by Jhoke Publishers Multan who have been a reputed publisher and doing worth appreciationg for the Siraiki language under the supervision of Zahoor Ahmed Dhreja. It can be found at all famous book shops of Pakistan.
