The history of Benares is in it, how was it, what has it become which Kedar Nath Singh is writing about intermixing art, culture, societal values and realistic description. The myth Benares is, the myth which it needs to be busted. Coating it with the arrival of spring, the poem reveals a lot indirectly what it is in faith, what the reality standing at variance with.
