The book would have contents from various Tamil epics, arts and cultural pieces and also poems by eminent writers, Shaktivel, the brain behind the attempt, told reporters.
It would also contain 20 collection of poems written by him and his friend Babu Charles and would provide relevant drawings, with pencil and colour paintings, 32-year old Shaktivel said.
