Treasure Island

Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

One can gain wisdom if he moves with the learned persons!


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!

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
