Leaving The People Who Are Not Honest In Mind! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Seeing people who don’t live on food
…by borrowing is fine!

Getting rid of the women – wives –
..who are not chaste is fine!

Leaving with fear of the people
…who are not honest in mind is very fine
than other virtues!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,

கடமுண்டு வாழாமை காண்டல் இனிதே
நிறைமாண்பில் பெண்டிரை நீக்கல் இனிதே
மனமாண்பி லாதவரை யஞ்சி யகறல்
எனைமாண்புந் தான்இனிது நன்கு.10 இனியவை நாற்பது

    the whole world lives on the borrowed money in one way or another. Even if one declares that he doesn't owe anything to anyone, on his behalf, his country owes a lot...
    it is good to avoid the people who live on debt,
    it is good to avoid the women who are not chaste,
    it is good to avoid the people who are not honest.

    wonderful iniyavai narpathu.. and I thank you for sharing our Tamil treasures here.. (Report) Reply
