Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(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!
