A/C Luxury bus

A/C Luxury bus,
Got seat to sit,
Window seat!

A/C Luxury bus,
Exorbitant charges,
No seat to sit!

Air-conditioned Luxury bus,
Very high bus ticket fare,
Comfortable seat!

  122.     

All other happiness come along with virtue

Luminous rudrakshas
grow in the mountains,

Much delight is borne
by the pleasing words
of the chaste wife / fiancee,

Virtuous qualities
are attained by the
soft nature and grace,

All other happiness
come along with VIRTUE,
resulting in consequence
with the help of his wealth!
 
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
   
 

   
   
 

  123.     

An illiterate who knows nothing

As if a poor man in need of money
waiting for the right time at the mercy
of a rich man to improve his family,

an illiterate who knows nothing
and wants to learn some thing
to get power and knowledge
has to wait patiently and humbly
at the mercy of a learned scholar;

If not, he can't learn
and considered as lowest
among the men!
 
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
   
 

   
   
 

  124.     

Anger leads to loss of friends!

“Be not angry that you can’t make others
as you wish them to be, since you can’t
make yourself as you wish to be”
said Thomas a Kempis!

Here is a story! Murugan, the only son to his father,
He used to get angry unreasonably for silly matter(s)
With friends who deserted him gradually,
He didn't respect his parents too!

Since his friends didn't come to him closely,
He showed his anger towards his parents severely,
He broke many household things arrogantly,
His parents suffered mentally and monetarily!

His father called him one day and said,
Do you know how much we lose money and peace?
Since you quarreled, from the school you are removed,
Your friends are also gradually reduced!

Why do you get angry so often?
He replied, “Others must listen as I wish,
Including my mother and you should listen,
If you all listen, I stop getting angry!

The father smiled with disgust and said,
Ok! Let us have an agreement with one condition;
Whenever you get angry, take one nail
From this box and nail it on that tree!

He accepted and started nailing one by one,
He approached the tree next day and counted the nails,
There were ten nails on that day, feeling sad!
He continued on the following days!

But, the nails gradually reduced day by day,
He realized that he can reduce his anger,
His father called him on seventh day,
Asked him to remove the nails on that day!
,
While he removed, he found the tree with lot of holes,
There dribbled juicy milk – gutta percha from the holes,
The father said now pleasingly, “Look my son!
See the injury the tree sustained in many places!

This is how your angry words had injured everybody,
How much they should have had upset all the day,
Murugan realized his mistake and regretted,
with tears from both his eyes, he said,

He will behave pleasingly leaving his anger,
He does not require nails and hammer hereafter,
He started going to school with apology letter,
He rejoiced with his friends and parents for ever!
 
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
