Realize The Worldly Welfare By Being Neutral - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Ignorant people, if they get an ulcer,
shall wash and apply medicine;

But,

they will fry the fresh red flesh of the animals
and eat the roasted meat;

Alas!

Is it not the faulty practice of the people
who don’t realize the worldly welfare by being neutral?

தன்புண் கழுவி மருந்திடுவர் தாம்பிறிதின்
செம்புண் வறுத்த வறைதின்பர் - அந்தோ!
