The Manners To Follow While Elders Get Up And Go! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

When somebody gets up and goes,
…One should not call him loudly from behind,

Should not sneeze, should not ask him
…even by mistake where he is going,

He should not say anything face to face
…by going and standing in front of him,

But he shall speak by standing on both sides of him,
…And go past him on the right side of such elders!

எழுச்சிக்கண் பிற்கூவார் தும்மார் வழுக்கியும்
எங்குற்றுச் சேறீரோ வென்னாரே முன்புக்
