Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Behavior of clear minded persons!


Clear minded persons
......who are free from smirch;
Will not acquire other’s
......things and materials by snatch!

They will not drink toddy;
......get away from the evil deeds;
And be pure and clean;
......never make fun and belittle others!

Even if they are ignored,
......they never speak lies by any chance;
By fate, even if they become infamous,
......they will not feel sorry!

Note: Clear minded persons – Noble persons.
