A Person Who Could Not Learn As And When He Is Young! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
There is no one who has collected toll charges
…after allowing somebody to trespass the pathway;
Likewise, no one could collect the charges for the
...travel in a boat after it reaches the destination!
Similarly, a person who could not learn
…as and when he is young and youthful,
Can you say he can learn during old age
…and become knowledgeable and efficient?

ஆற்றும் இளமைக்கண் கற்கலான் மூப்பின்கண்
போற்றும் எனவும் புணருமோ - ஆற்றச்
