Education And Riches Both Go Hand In Hand! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The calf of high breed cow
...can be sold for a higher price!

The people will listen to the words
...of uneducated person, if he is rich!

The words of an educated person
...will not be respected, if he is poor!

Even though as if people listen,
...And of course they don’t follow and forget!

It is similar to ploughing the slightly wet land,
...But the ploughing will not be very deep!

So one should be educated;
...He should become rich also by decent means!

Hence Education and riches,
...Both go hand in hand and respected!

One should not be uneducated,
...Everybody must have quality education!

One should not be poor,
...Everybody should work hard and earn wealth!

நல்லாவின் கன்றாயின் நாகும் விலைபெறூஉம்
