Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The people who consider that they will live without any hindrance!


The people who consider that they will live throughout
…the end of their life-time without any hindrance

will not get agitated if they are stopped
…at the entrance where the rulers reside,

they will not take too much privilege
…that the ruler can't tolerate,

they will not retain the ruler's dues
…levied to them even by chance,

they will not decorate themselves
…with dress and ornaments equal to the ruler,

they will not go across the ruler's chamber
…to join with others!

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
