Great People Are Like Weightless Tray! Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Great people with education and virtue
will bow their head low even to less calibred persons,
If they are found to be extremely disciplined!

If you analyze, in a weighing scale
the tray with no weight shall go up,
whereas the tray with weight goes down!

Great people are like weightless tray, they always go up!
whereas less calibred person are like the tray with heavy weight,
they always go down, considered lower for ever!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'Great people are like weightless tray! ' is a translation of a poem from Tamil literature 'NiithineRi viLakkam'

சிறுமையும் பெருமையும்

ஆக்கம் பெரியார், சிறியார் இடைப்பட்ட
மீச்செலவு காணின் நனிதாழ்ப - தூக்கின்
மெலியது மேன்மேல் எழச்செல்லச் செல்ல,
வலிதன்றே தாழுந் துலைக்கு. (பாடல்-16) நீதிநெறி விளக்கம்

கனமில்லாத தட்டுப் போன்றவர் பெரியோர். அவர்கள் உயர்ந்து செல்வர். கனமுள்ள தட்டுப் போன்றவர் சிறியோர். அவர்கள் எப்போதும் தாழ்ந்தே இருப்பர்.
