Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

A house with a deferring wife becomes a forest where tiger lives!


One can’t say the house sans nothing
while one is having a chaste and good
hearted wife in the house; he has everything!

while there is no wife and there is a wife who defers
and confronts with wordy dual, that house becomes
a forest with thick bushes where tiger lives!

மனையாளில்லாத மனை

இல்லா ளகத்திருக்க இல்லாத தொன்றில்லை

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
