Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Never encourage alluring enterprises!


Anticipating the profit and wealth
Investing in greedy activities like sharing
Plantations, shares, race and gambling,
Private chits and high risk mutual funds
For higher rates of promised interests;

People with education, knowledge
And mental stability never encourage
Alluring enterprises to lose their wealth!
Thinking with good reasoning, invest
In Government schemes to better profit!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
