FORMS THIS COLLECTION. It is only for placing before the readers some synopsesfor their getting an idea of ‘what is all this about.’ The author hopes that he will besuccessful in this venture.

It is said, once there lived a community of blind people. All of them were completely blind. Nonehad ever seen light or the world as seen (and experienced) by the normal people with perfectseeing healthy eyes. None could tell what the world, its people or the things and other livingbeings look like. When told about the 'seen' world, they simply laughed at the very idea (not totalk of the existence) of a world with people with both eyes intact, healthy and seeing.Same is the condition with the healthy living world with the eyes intact. Used to all the upsidedown condition of the affairs of the world, they just accept it as normal, just and fair. All of themcan never visualise a condition of the world that is real-healthy-perfect and the ideal. The ups anddowns, the errant curves---are simply accepted as straight and normal and the ideal.The efforts of the present author are to change this state of affairs; the affairs that ought to benear perfect if not perfect. I say so not because perfect states can not be reached but to seem togo with the current currents where only 'near perfect' states alone can be understood. In fact,presently, the world understands only those states that are ' far from perfect'.To accomplish this 'aim' the author has started these series of books. They are aptly titled' Hope for Mankind'. They are meant to bail out 'Hope For Mankind'. They are meant to ring outthe old and ring in the new. Mind you, I am not alluding to empty hopes. My efforts encompassattainment of real-solid results that would look utopian in the present prevailing contexts.After maintaining that 'Hope......Eternal' is at our door-step the author proceeds to instill it in theminds of all beings ------'high or low (in fact the author proposes plans to end all this difference of stature ---- existing between the ' high' and the ' low' . All will be equals in the real sense. (Thedetails of this equality will be discussed later), 'the privileged and the unprivileged' (In fact theauthor sees a world that is devoid of all privileges ---quite near at hand) including 'the haves andthe haves not'. ( In fact the author sees a world from which all 'haves not' shall vanish and only'haves' shall be existing on the surface of the earth.) And don't you ever make the mistake of calling it an utopian idea. Many such 'Utopian Ideas' shall fill the real worlds of the peoples whichin turn shall change the world of non-peoples (animals etc.) to utopian extents. In fact this word'utopian' shall cease to exist from vocabulary and 'possible' shall take its place.
Hope At Seventy
I have been a teacher all my life. My ex-students in earlier days thought it to be useless to meetme on their occasional visits to their Alma Mater. “He never talks openly with us”, was their usualgrievance against me. Later students them selves removed this hurdle by inviting me to their hostel and putting their problems before me.Thus started a life-long association with the young world who later grew up into adults and nowinto retired old gentlemen with white hair and beards. My earlier inhibitions stopped me fromtelling them my inhabiting place which changed too often. My chance encounters with thembrought me their intense desire to meet me but unaware of the place of my dwelling their wishes just got muffled bringing to me an uneasy feeling of having over-looked a very important part of my duties i. e. having a permanent residence which could always be in the knowledge of mystudents --- young or old. Similarly I too want to meet my old teachers to express my gratitudeand love.But it is never too late: even at seventy, today there is hope of remedying this over-lookedomission
