INTRODUCTION

All that I have to do now to this slim volume is to add that part of thanks-giving, which you know, is a MUST. I express thanks lavishly to my readers who in person and by post sent their appreciation and have been reminding me now and then to bring it under covers. Their number is more and tastes varied, say diametrically apposed in some cases. Let me first mention one solitary example of adulation an,! its aftermath. I approached in 1990 an eminent lawyer of enviable standing and status, but unknown till then, for a little favour, and on hearing my name, giving me seat in his innermost chamber, he said, "By accident my eyes lighted upon your article printed under the caption, The Mighty Atoms for Tiny Tots in Yuvabharati, bought on my trip of Kanyakumari. What an assemblage of aphorisms and how well are they codified? That explication I liked, and carried me the end. Done a good job for all". To be true, his legal brain exuded literary fragrance and his genuineness touched me most. Later, his good offices helped me a lot. I thank that high-souled man, though I am unwilling to disclose his identity for certain reasons.

Another! Certainly a disapprobation. The reverse of the same coin. Even though a little bit caustic, it deserves space. Meeting me in the park. one reader friend disclaimed. "Who will understand your bombastic diction'' For whom do you write? Do you expect the reader keeping a dictionary in one hand, and your book in another. Sorry, it's horrible though the morals are well arrayed ......" I wasn't disappointed. nor drew him into argument. since his observation is true to some extent. The only errors I committed. I admit frankly. is resorting to pleonasm and repetition. I am conscious of them, but my assumption. approach,
and finally argument do need such elements. Moral teachings are rarely simple and plain-the kernel is seldom hidden in thin cellophane envelope. Its shell is hard and demands strain before relishing. I believed in it and so did that deliberately. Any how, it is a kind of style combining merits good and had. Unequally I feel. Except one or two of that bitter gourd brand remarks, rest were that of honey drops and I swallowed them smacking. So I thank all for their frank and free expressions.
