Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

One acquires virtue by showing supple mercy!


One shall be condemned if he is scolding others,
while we respect others, we will have good relationship;

We may enjoy life with pleasure due to the acquired wealth,
But, one acquires virtue by showing supple mercy to all!
