It Is A Pleasurable Duty Of The People Of Excellence! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The cloud absorbs the salty water from the ocean
..and makes it to pour as pure and sweet water as rain!

Likewise, It is a pleasurable duty of the people
..of excellence with noble character, to remove

the errors of the ignorant persons and make them
..to befit with good character and safeguard them!
