Impudence And Indolence Result In Great Loss! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Everyone may be knowing
the game of snake and ladder!

Head of the snake will be
in the last but one square - 99,

prior to the winning post,
The tail will be in the square - 3!

Now we shall find out who is this snake,
Its name was Nagushan who was a saint once!

He did sacrifices of thousand horses
and got a place in Indran kingdom!

He had a long time desire and ambition
to have the queen of Lord Indran for him!

Hence, he sent word to the Indrani
through his messenger about his arrival!

Indrani was very much upset in mind
Asked for advice from Agasthiya, in hand!

Agasthiya promised her that he will help
He asked her not to worry, he shall look after!

Nagushan was ready to proceed to Indrani’s palace,
Sitting inside his palanquin, he ordered 1000 saints to carry!

With lot of amusements and dancing procession,
He was proceeding to Indran kingdom!

Noticing the procession was proceeding very slowly,
He beat the saint Agasthiya with a stick, “Sarppa.. Sarppa”

Meaning to go fast.. fast..
Sarppa means snake also!

Agasthiya got angry cursed Nagushan
to be a python in the earthen world!

Realized Nagushan begged for pardon,
With shivering, asked for curse redemption!

Agasthiya said Nagushan shall get redemption
With the help of Yuthishtra, son of Pandu!

What the lesson we learn from this story?
Even a little indolence results in great loss!

When a person gets wealth, power and authority,
He should not get impudence, indolence and ego!
