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.
