Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

A pleasing gentleman is the one who is liked for ever!


A person who is said to be eating pleasant food
is the one who eats without killing any life for food,
but the one who eats only vegetarian food!

A person who is said to be a hated personality
Is the one who lives with loss of cheers in his face really,
but the one who behaves with others snappishly!

A person who is said to be lonely without companion
Is the one who has not done anything good to anyone,
but the one who was idle, without helping tendency!

A person who is said to be a pleasing gentleman
Is the one who is not hated by any body whomsoever,
But the one who is a well disciplined person, liked for ever!

இனிதுண்பான் என்பான் உயிர்கொல்லா(து) உண்பான்;
முனிதக்கான் என்பான் முகன்ஒழிந்து வாழ்வான்;

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
