Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The goodness of not fetching other's property!

It is pleasant to live with thankfulness
…considering the help done to you by others!

The virtue of not speaking with partiality
…in the court of justice is pleasant!

There is nothing more pleasant
…than the goodness of not fetching other's property

which is kept in your custody sometime ago
…‘thinking that who is going to know'!
