Subbaraman N V (31st July 1941 / Karaikkudi - Tamilnadu- India)
QUESTION OF TOMORROW
Atlast underground nuclear test
To show India at its best
All over the world invoking protest
Our engineers and scientists better than the rest!
Scientists proud, diplomats justify
Public applaud, politicians protect
Peace loving worries, economists mystified
Philosophers perturbed, neighbours grumble!
National security paramount sure
Pride of the people fine to ensure
Ego of the engineers important indeed
Skills of the scientists progress with speed!
Nation atlast gained or lost
Neighbours' jealousy looming large
Fear of war gripping fast
Do we need at this stage?
War the child of sickly mind
Peace the fruit of healthy brain
War and peace flow from men and their mind
War abhorred, peace nursed prosperity can't drain!
'Atom for peace'
Avowed goal of yesterday
Nuclear power for peace
Clarion call of today
Do we go with ease
Sure question of tomorrow!
