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!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
