Noble People Will Be Listening With Compassion! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

In an audience of futile persons
with improper knowledge
and poor intelligence,

If a person with inadequate education
is conversing to his interest and discussing,
Noble people of good manners - with painful feeling

and due regards to that person - will be listening
to him with compassion lest that person
should not be humiliated by other listeners!

புல்லா எழுத்தின் பொருள்இல் வறுங்கோட்டி,
கல்லா ஒருவன் உரைப்பவும், கண்ஓடி,
நல்லார் வருந்தியும் கேட்பரே, மற்றுஅவன்
பல்லாருள் நாணல் பரிந்து.155 மேன்மக்கள், நாலடியார்
