The cover is all about the humility of a believing heart to thank God for all the blessings received without condition and to beg for forgiveness for failing to be grateful. It portrays that moment when a pilgrim in faith, in his emptiness and helplessness, reaches out to God in silence and tears. It is an intimation of a profound need to be with God.
