Maintain The Genetic Dignity! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Even if a Brahmin ever forgets
the Veda Mantras what he had learnt,
he can learn again by repeated chanting;

But, if he loses his virtue and character,
his genetic dignity obtained through generations
is lost for ever!

It is said thousand years ago,
It holds good to everybody, also today,
Maintain the genetic dignity!
