Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Behavior of the people with good qualities!


The people with good qualities
…shall not light the furnace
to prepare food for themselves;

shall not eat for their sake alone,
…but for helping others,
shall not make their kitchen dirt;

they will eat only
…after they offer to the God
which lives in their home!
