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!
