Treasure Island

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!
