Coming to his fiction describing the culture and heritage of Munger District. There are many places of worship at Munger like Sita Charan temple, Chandikasthan, Sita Kund etc. Also prevalent are folklore linking these to ancient stories. The story gives life to few of that folklore through a present-day adventure in which Shakti, Binod and Rakesh, the three protagonists, unravel few most debatable secrets of Ramayana.

Munger, once a historic place, has been of great importance not only in Ramayana, Mahabharata but also during the fight against the British. However, due to lack of proper attention, the city seems forgotten in modern times. Most of the youth migrate to other places due to the lack of suitable opportunities.
