Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Don't consider the wealth is eternal!


While the wife feeds
the husband, with love and desire,
the different types of foods
prepared with six tastes;

And he takes only one handful,
leaving the rest untouched,
from the quantity of food prepared,
the remaining food is wasted;

However rich,
he is likely to become poor one day
and beg for food in some other place,
Hence don't consider the wealth is eternal!

(naalatiyaar - aRaththuppaal - selvam nilaiyaamai 1)

Hence don't waste food
and share it with everybody,
Utilise your wealth
for charity!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
