An Esteemed Person - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Play Poem Video

As a yak in Himalayas happens to lose
its thick fur-like hair during winter season,
It can't survive and die due to heavy snowfall;

Similarly An Esteemed Person,
if he happens to lose his modesty,
shall die if the lost modesty is regained!

Is there Any Esteemed Person nowadays?
Many persons who attended CBI enquiry
are in Tihar Jail and are still alive!
