Treasure Island

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!
