INTRODUCTION

To hit the target, I believe, the poems can better be taught in the form of address, laying enough stress on the central idea. And resorting to repetition of it with several vivid picturesque images.

This calls for active involvement. The teacher's missionary zeal goes along way in accomplishing this laudable ideal. On no account, the artistic embellishments of the poems or the linguistic elegances be given any importance; they must be sacrificed to the literal rendition i.e. totally subordinated to the elucidation of universal truths enshrined in them. And it is for this alone, they find their legitimate place in the curriculum.

The following pages bear unmistakable evidence of the method envisaged. Indeed, I made a conscious effort of translating, my ambition of instilling the sum and substance of the universal truths into the minds of the tiny tots in the fashion, I deemed fit and proper. A few of the cardinal moral principles are selected and they are spread over one week--teaching them one each day for six days and recapitulating their spirit on the seventh day. Incidentally, this enables both the teacher and the taught to strike the balance sheet, reflecting the stage of progress and to chalk out the programme for future.
