One Can Gain Wisdom If He Moves With The Learned Persons! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Even though a person is not learned,
...if he moves along with the learned persons,
he will gain the wisdom day by day!

As per the ancient glory, as if adding the bright colored
...‘flower of Stereospermum suaveolens’ to the water
in the new mud pot provides the flavor to the water!

கல்லாரே யாயினும் கற்றாரைச் சேர்ந்தொழுகின்
நல்லறிவு நாளுந் தலைப்படுவர் - தொல்சிறப்பின்
ஒண்ணிறப் பாதிரிப்பூச் சேர்தலாற் புத்தோடு
தண்ணீர்க்குத் தான்பயந் தாங்கு.139. கல்வி, நாலடியார்
