The second and fourth poems are recently written. All the other poems were written long ago, the dates of which are given. Now, in some cases, slight changes are made here and there to make it up to date!
From the book:
28 – 06 - 1997
Writing pure science in verse is horrible
If even blank verse, not pardonable,
Agree; but it's needed, though not prelude,
As basic knowledge, book this can't exclude.
Being pained to see the blunders performed,
Able not to feel the meanings informed,
Eager to find answers to questions-
Raised by the true ferreting, mind's actions,
Humbly I present: these problems to you
And expect to hear the replies from you.
Twisting things not good, for argument's sake,
Answers direct, if not coming, forsake.
There’s no exaggeration the slightest;
Only, actually what's seen and heard best
Reproduced with proof and then presented
As doubts genuine and answers are awaited!
When ideas choke, words few to report,
And the means of presentation distort.
Read between lines, pardon for crimes committed
Only few most needed chapters, pure science meted!
Please have patience enough to go through lines
Only serious efforts will give gains.
Read, read and think, and read again to think
Save yourself from superstitions, don't sink
But, if you are one who argues and frowns
That both the rabbits you caught had three horns!
And if someone brings a rabbit to you
And shows that it has no horns, then too you -
Say, that may not have, but those caught by you
Had; I bow, check your head too please, thank you!
