Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Eat again only after digestion


Any person must know his limit
How much food he can take
Every time;

After already taken food
Had properly digested,
And then eat accordingly;

That is the way he can maintain
The body with proper health
To lead a long and happy life!

Don’t go on eating
Voraciously and frequently
That will spoil your health!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
