The People Of The Higher Order Of Personality Behave To Maintain Their Modesty! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
O' the girl who has the long eyes resembling the spear
with bow like eyebrows that has prominent fat on its sides!
The people of the last and low grade personality
Will lose their modesty for the fear of terrifying hungry!
The people of the middle order of personality will lose
Their modesty for the fear of the agony in view of their death!
The people of the higher order of personality with the fear of
the words of defamation will try to behave to maintain their modesty!
Poet's Notes about The Poem
This poem 'The people of the higher order of personality behave to maintain their modesty! ' is a translation by me of a poem from Tamil literature 'Naalatiyaar'
கடையெலாம் காய்பசி அஞ்சுமற் றேனை
இடையெல்லாம் இன்னாமை அஞ்சும் - புடைபரந்த
விற்புருவ வேனெடுங் கண்ணாய்! தலையெல்லாம்
சொற்பழி அஞ்சி விடும்.297
- மானம், நாலடியார்
