Don’t Offer Shelter To The Wicked Persons!
Grief is attained for the successors
and the good hearted persons who gave
shelter for the ungrateful wicked people;
similar to the king swan which suffered
due to giving shelter in the hill to the crow
which came in the late night!

Poet's Notes about The Poem
This poem 'Don’t offer shelter to the wicked persons! ' is a translation of a Tamil poem from 'neethi veNpaa'
நன்றறியாத் தீயோர்க் கிடங்கொடுத்த நல்லோர்க்கும்
துன்று கிளைக்கும் துயர்சேரும் - குன்றிடத்தில்
பின்இரவில் வந்தகரும் பிள்ளைக் கிடங்கொடுத்த
அன்னமுதற் பட்டதுபோ லாம்.74 நீதி வெண்பா
The story behind this poem follows:
There was a King swan who suffered due to giving place in the hill top nest for a crow; The crow came shivering in the late night drenched in rain. The swan was living in the cave at the top of the hill with its family and the flock of helping ministers and associates. Nobody can climb over it and all were safe.
When the crow asked for a place to stay during night, the king swan pitied and wanted to help the crow. In spite of the minister swan objected, the king allowed the crow to stay. The crow left a seed in its dropping at the foot hill, which later grew in to a big tree through which the hunter climbed atop the mountain and grabbed the entire swan and its family. The lesson is, ‘Don’t offer shelter to the wicked persons’.
