Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Don’t have company with the dishonest idiots!


It is pleasant
…to live without abetting
the wealth of others possession!

It is pleasant
…to live by doing virtuous deeds;
not doing the illegitimate deeds!

It is pleasant
…to live without being in company
with the dishonest idiots even by mistake!

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
