Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Kindness is the unmatching penance

'O' heart!
Do penance! Do penance!
If you do penance, you can achieve
Whatever you like, in this universe;

Nothing is equal and better than kindness,
Kindness is the unmatchable penance,
People who are kind to everybody
Live for ever gladly and happily'

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is the impulse and result of reading a nice poem by Great Tamil Poet Subramania Barathi.

"செய்கதவம்! செய்கதவம்! நெஞ்சே! தவம் செய்தால்
எய்த விரும்பியதை யெய்தலாம் - வையகத்தில்
அன்பிற் சிறந்த தவமில்லை அன்புடையார்
இன்புற்று வாழ்த லியல்பு"

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
