The Knowledgeable Persons Do Not Desire…!


A horse with improper ambling gait;

A wild elephant which breaks the tying post,
Unsuitable to carry the warrior on its back;

The school where a teacher frets and grudges
Teaching his students with huffy moods;

These three things are not desired
By the knowledgeable persons!

கால்தூய்மை யில்லாக் கலிமாவுங் காழ்கடிந்து
மேல்தூய்மை யில்லாத வெங்களிறுஞ் - சீறிக்
கறுவி வெகுண்டுரைப்பான் பள்ளிஇம் மூன்றும்
குறுகார் அறிவுடை யார்.46 – திரிகடுகம்
