Knowledge Of Letters And Numbers - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Knowledge of Letters and Numbers
are essentials and EQUIVALENT to EYES;

In those days, say in olden days
the scope of education was very low;
Those people acquired the knowledge
by way of learning numbers to count,
And letters to interact with, in a learned court.

Ref: ThirukkuRaL 392
eNNenpa Enai ezhuththenpa ivviraNtum
kaNNenpa vaazhum uyirkku.
