  133.     

Greed and Arrogance Lead To Loss Of Life!

Darkness passing and day is starting
from the east sun is energetically rising
beautiful flowers in the garden freshly blooming
dressed with different attractive colors matching!

There comes a fleshy golden beetle – cuckoo fly,
with a buzz into the garden to suck the honey,
The beetle was very arrogant of its beauty,
It used to select the most beautiful flowers!

It sucks the entire honey with agony to flowers,
Due to its arrogance, no other fellow beetles
have friendship with this dirty guy,
This beetle was relaxing on a leaf happily!

Seeing this arrogant and rogue beetle,
A colorful butterfly wanted to take revenge,
Plotted a plan to kill it by any means
A nice plan clicked in its tiny brain!

It went to all the beautiful flowers,
whispered into the ears of a few flowers,
This news was spread through the breeze
throughout the garden to the entire flowers!

When the fatty beetle sat on a big flower first
greedily, the beautiful flower crying with lament,
shedding tears and drenching the grass beneath
The beetle asked with sorrow, “Why do you cry? ”

O’ brother, you will take the honey now from me,
The sun uncle will come in a while and burn me
I will get charred, wither in a short time, hence I cry,
The beetle felt pity and went to other flowers!

These were also crying for the same reason
While it was relaxing on the plant for a while,
the dew drops were crying that the sun will devour them,
the beetle sat pathetically on the grass!

The grass were also crying and sobbing
that the young children who come to play,
the elders who come for walking on their way
will tread with shoes and kill them!

Time is passing on, beetle gets very hungry,
Instantly it heard a voice from a big flower
calling him pleasingly to suck its honey,
it went with greed, sat in the heart of that flower!

Alas! The rare and odd flower gradually
closed its petals with their grip firmly,
When the flower opened its petals later,
The beetle was not alive, fell dead for ever!

It lost its life due to arrogance and greed,
The other young beetles, butterflies
and flowers too felt happy; All together indeed,
Hooray! merrily celebrated and danced!

Happy Family Life

When a man showers love and affection
- FONDNESS - to his wife;

And shares food with needy and relatives
- VIRTUE -

Fondness results in quality
- CHARACTER -

Virtue yields the
- FRUIT- to a Happy family life.

  135.     

He is my beloved father!

A young man was called as ‘Control’
prefixing his name Kanniappan;

One may wonder why ‘Control’
and how it came attached to him;

Some people say whether he
controls everybody with his order;

Is he a disciplinarian that he brings
everybody under his ‘control’;

No, he is a disciplined man, well
brought him up with good manners;

His father taught him how to be
generous and charitable to the poor;

While there was a procurement of paddy
for supplying the ration rice during calamity;

He offered his produce of paddy for the
control price of Rs 10/bag not only to the govt;

but also to all poor people and low grade
government servants for the same ‘Control’

price while others were hiding and selling
paddy for exuberant price of Rs 25/bag!

Do you know who it is, called
‘Control Kanniappa Mudaliar’

I am proud to say that
he is my beloved father!

  136.     

Help others!

Nothing is so sad and sorrowful than death!

But even death is sometimes pleasant and better
while one is unable to help and offer to the poor
in need and distress!

A friend in need is a friend indeed,
But a person who helps the poor in need
is similar to God! Help others!
 
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
