title 'Mighty Atoms for Tiny Tots' needs explanation. Not that it is ambiguous,
nor even mystifying; but, it connotes more than what its words denote. Hence the
Atoms are mighty. Any guess work! No. Modern Science has demonstrated their
potency through the historic destruction of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, and people
witnessed it with eyes, wide open and hearts petrified. So, no skepticism about
I arm not here referring to those atoms of physical matter, about which
scientists strove, and are still striving to bring out their latent powers both
constructive and destructive, in their entirety, but I confine myself to the
pretty, little literary sparks that darted from the forge of the poets'
intellect-the tiny poems, whose potential wealth is superior to that of the
dynamic strength of the physical matter.
For tapping the infinite potentialities of the atoms of the physical matter,
gigantic efforts of the specially trained brains are essential. Further,
enormous amounts of money and stupendous organizational acumen have to be
pressed into service to knock them down. Hence, their cost is prohibitive.
But, for releasing the inherent dynamic power of the atoms under discussion,
almost nothing is needed--neither enormous amount of money, nor highly
disciplined mind. Only a negligible effort-a mere interplay of lips, abetted by
vocal organs is enough. Skilful initiation, adequate exhortation, appropriate
illustration and ingenious peroration complete the picture. Done this, the
intrinsic worth of the poems release tremendous man power latent in the
listening minds, which is by far mightier than the atomic energy, measured by
