Saans Ke Sikke is a collection of 101 Trivenis by Tripurari. These Trivenis have various well-illustrated thoughts. For example- colors of love, the importance of human relationships in present times, vitality of parent’s love in life, sense of hope in the moments of dejection, the desire to live amidst hardships, and so on. According to Tripurari, the art of realization that tears and happiness are two sides of a coin is the only key to remain contended while suffering.
Triveni is a form of Urdu-Hindi poetry, which conveys a thought in three lines. The thought is complete in itself in first two lines like a couplet (sher) of Urdu ghazal and third line is an extension or a comment on that particular thought.

(About North Campus Book)
These are the breathing stories which have lived. People who studied at North Campus would be lost in the mist of past, with the desire in their heart to never come back.

Tripurari’s voice is unmistakable, both on the page and to the ear. His poems are delivered with a tone of keen observation and authority. That voice speaks plainly of the more vulnerable parts of human experience—desire, pain, loneliness—but it does not quaver. Readers can find familiar themes in Tripurari’s poems yet come away surprised and changed due to the vivid imagery and creative use of language. Tripurari tirelessly shares his voice through these memorable poems, as well as song lyrics and images that depict his words. On top of his formidable writing skills, he is a friendly, approachable person who is eager to offer feedback to other writers and to collaborate. Even as he shares his own voice loudly, he encourages others to do the same.
