Maintain the genetic dignity!


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 generation
is lost for ever!

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

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
