If One Gets Clutched With Slandering Words! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

If one gets clutched with slandering words
…that he is the person who gambles,

What all he learnt through books of knowledge,
...What all he had explored to the best of his knowledge,

The virtue of what others speak of him
...as a learned person, all will leave him!
