Three Ill Effects In The Society Leading To Poverty! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The pond to which the path of the main stream
Is not well formed and channelized to fill to the brim

An infant which is not fed on the breast of the mother
To its entire satisfaction so as to fill it’s stomach ever

Any men who are not having the virtues by education
Learned and acquired through high systematic tradition

Are the three ill effects in the society
That leads to sufferings and poverty!

A pond with no enough storage of water,
An infant with no enough mothers’ milk,
Any men with no enough acquired knowledge
Are of no use, but for leading to poverty!
