Always Try To Maintain Nobility! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Whether it is possible or impossible,
The noble persons shall think of the admirable
Deeds only, without submitting them for abuse!

The missed arrow which was aimed at Lion
Is not to be blamed than the swift arrow
That pierced the heart of the Jackal!

The noble persons should aim to do
The rare and best activities possible;
Even it fails, always try to maintain nobility!

இசையும் எனினும் இசையா தெனினும்
வசைதீர எண்ணுவர் சான்றோர்; - விசையின்
நரிமா உளங்கிழித்த அம்பினின் தீதோ,
அரிமாப் பிழைப்பெய்த கோல்? 152 மேன்மக்கள்

    The world would have gone to the dogs had there been no noble minds who neutralize the wickedness with acts of love, courage and nobility! A very meaningful poem! (Report) Reply
