Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Three personalities are considered as one’s friends!

A person who is confident in his efforts
lives without any debts; lives with his own resources!

A farmer who is doing agriculture and helpful to everyone
will not eat alone while the guests waiting without food!

A person who is capable of knowing secrets of others
and will never forget what he knows; and in his mind retains!

It is well and good for any person in his life
to consider the above three personalities as his friends!

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
