The Foolishness Of Following Other’s Wife! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The foolishness of following other’s wife
…with lust is disastrous!

The entering into the battlefield by the king
…who has no courage is disastrous!

The mounting on the back of the unsaddled
…fast galloping horse is disastrous!

The activity carried out by the person
…who doesn’t know the knack of it is disastrous!

The traveling in a fast moving car
...without using seat belt is disastrous!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'The foolishness of following other’s wife! ' is a translation of a poem from Tamil literature 'innaa naaRpathu'

பிறன்மனையாள் பின்னோக்கும் பேதைமை யின்னா
மறமிலா மன்னர் செருப்புகுத லின்னா
வெறும்புறம் வெம்புரவி யேற்றின்னா வின்னா
திறனிலான் செய்யும் வினை.38 - இன்னா நாற்பது
