The book by distinguished art historian Dr Akbar Naqvi discloses the painting journey of artist Shahid Rassam, which led him to drawings and sculptures also. Shahid divided his journey in three periods. The "Romanticism to Poetic Surrealism" period covers poetry of Ahmed Faraz to Jaun Elia to Mirza Ghalib, the second period titled "The Oldest Profession Series", which he created while studying in London. And the third period was triggered by a stroll with a commercial sex worker at Kings Cross captioned "Business and Economics".
