Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The people who consider the qualities of the elders!


The people who considering the qualities of the elders
...and thinking that we shall live up to their levels

shall not speak about the help they had done to others,
...shall not speak ill about the food offered to them by others,

shall not praise the charities he had done to others
...and shall not praise the penance he had undertaken!
