Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The world higher than the place of GODS


A person who is proud of ‘himself'
Does not own his body and physique for ever!

A person who thinks the wealth is ‘MINE',
The wealth will not come with him
While he breaths his last breath!

"A person who cuts the pride of ‘I' and ‘MINE'
Will enter the world higher than the place of GODS"

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
