Treasure Island

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!

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
