Donate To Others At Least To The Extent Of Sesame Seed Size! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Telling what you had learnt
…in the presence of learned persons is good!

Reaching to be with superiors by knowledge
…is more dignified and very good!

If you donate to others
…at least to the extent of sesame seed size,

without begging by self,
…it is too good by all means!
