One Does Not Need Advice About Morality, If He Is..! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

One has to be deaf to the secret of others,
To be blind and not to look at other’s wife with lust,
To be dumb by not saying backbiting insolent words;

If one adopts and maintains the above three things
In his life by analyzing the intricacy and implications,
One need not advise him anything else about morality!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'One does not need advise about morality, if he is..! ' is a translation of a poem from Tamil literature 'Naalatiyaar'

பிறர்மறை யின்கட் செவிடாய்த் திறனறிந்
தேதிலா ரிற்கட் குருடனாய்த் தீய
புறங்கூற்றின் மூகையாய் நிற்பானேல், யாதும்
அறங்கூற வேண்டா அவற்கு. – 158, நாலடியார் - மேன்மக்கள்.
