Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Stand with indifferent face as if you are thinking something else!

The intelligent people will not plan
...anything in secret with others,

They will not be dependant
...on the King, the ruler,

They will not give their ears
...to what the King says to others,

In case if they happen to be
...in close association with the King,

let them stand with an indifferent face
...as if they are thinking something else!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
