Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The learned persons shall not abuse and insult anybody!

Rarest to the core, the learned persons shall not
…even by mistake abuse, don't insult anybody
and don't sleep in the midst of many others!

They will not accept to do something
…which they can't do; and they will not
escape by not doing it!

They will not speak anything wrongfully
…by ill treating the people
who are not financially sound!
