'The Virtue Is Compared With Milk' - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Colors of the cows vary,
The variety of the breeds vary,
But the color of the milk
does never vary,
It is always pure and white!


The quality for a human being
is the virtue he gains in his life time
through good deeds;

('The virtue is compared with milk')

The paths for attaining virtue
may be many genuine ways!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'The virtue is compared with milk' is the interpretation of a Tamil poem 118 from Naalatiyaar.

ஆவே றுருவின வாயினும், ஆபயந்த
பால்வே றுருவின வல்லவாம்; - பால்போல்
ஒருதன்மைத் தாகும் அறநெறி, ஆபோல்
உருவு பலகொளல் ஈங்கு. நாலடியார் 118, அறத்துப்பால்,12. மெய்ம்மை
