Distressing To Involve In Gambling With Dice For Friendship! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

It is very distressing to see the sufferings
…of the persons who are very friendly with you!

It is very distressing to see the elated behavior
…of the persons who keep themselves aloof!

It is very distressing to live in a place where there are
…no bondage of good relationship with each other!

Similarly, it is very distressing to involve
…in gambling with dice and play even for friendship!

நட்டா ரிடுக்கண்கள் காண்டல் நனியின்னா1
ஒட்டார் பெருமிதங் காண்டல் பெரிதின்னா2

நட்ட கவற்றினாற் சூது.25 இன்னா நாற்பது
