Treasure Island

Is it not a pity?


I hate people who make spelling mistakes.
They say that they know that much!

They should know their mistakes how much!
They cannot, should not say, I know this much!

Is it not a pity? And then
they should not write so much!

    Respected Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi,
    As you said, there are short forms in sending SMS and Emails, but while we write articles and poems either in Tamil or English, we should give importance for spellings and sentence formation. Suppose we make grammar or spelling mistakes in the document, it gives indication by an underline/sentence fragmentation error. Especially in eluthu.com, majority of writers make horrible mistakes in Tamil and they never bother. That is why I represented in poetic way. (Report) Reply

    what a protest! I like your frank opinion, but the spelling mistakes and grammatical errors are nothing in the modern internet world, as the English language acquires the shortest syllable leaving all vowels. I think we are changing, even the way you, doctors do the cataract operation nowadays is completely different from the knife and cutting board period..any way it is nice to read this poem, as the doctor in the poet VKK always wants the perfection in his work...
