(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

Not getting into grief, for not getting the desired object!

The virtue of not getting enraged
…to achieve the victory is pleasant!

The efficiency of one’s performance of the act
…of winning as much as possible is pleasant!

Not getting into grief, for not getting the desired object
…and doing what is within his capability is pleasant!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
