The theme of the book was 'LOVEIMPROMTWO' which was inspired by the newly launched 2-in-1 Pocket Perfume by Engage. This is the second edition of Durjoy Datta and Engage's collaboration wherein the first one was titled as 'Pocketful O' Stories'. One of the unique features of the book is that instead of giving the writer's name they have included their Instagram ID. 

Talking about the same, Durjoy said, "It is more difficult to write micro tales than something in a longer format. Every sentence and word has something that people can resonate with. It was very difficult for me to shortlist from 25,000 entries as almost all the submissions were really well written."
