Offer your anger to me as fee!

A king took his son for learning to a teacher
who already knows how much the citizens suffer
Hence the teacher sternly advised the king
who got extremely angry; but didn't say anything!

He kept quiet for the sake of the education of the prince,
The prince had completed his education in the school once,
While he was offering the fee to the teacher voluntarily
He said, “I will accept it when the need comes, quietly”!

After the prince arrived the palace, the king sent his army,
ordered for destroying the school in the forest thoroughly,
The prince, without knowing, what had happened
went once again to the forest and thereby found;

The teacher was conducting classes in the river bed,
The prince came to know about the king’s cruelty!
Somehow when the prince offered the fee,
the teacher said, “I don’t need it now too’!

‘I will ask and accept it when the time comes’
While the prince returned to the palace desperately,
The teacher also followed him behind very silently,
The prince pulled his sword swiftly!

He was about to cut his father’s head angrily,
“How dare you insulted the honorable teacher
Who pinpointed your ruling cruelly so far? ”
Instantly, the teacher appeared before him there!

Said, ”O’ my son! You offer
your fees to me and kill your father’
Shocked by seeing the teacher surprisingly,
He offered lot of gold and gems generously!

The teacher asked him, “O’ my sincere disciple!
Will you offer me whatever ask, for example?
While the prince nodded affirmatively,
The teacher asked him very calmly!

“Offer your anger to me as fee”
The prince put down his sword,
humbly offered what the teacher wanted,
Anger kills and never offer reward!

A fool gives full vent to his anger,
but a wise man keeps himself under control!
Buddha says, “Holding on to anger is like grasping
a hot coal, you are the one who gets burned”!
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan



Oh' the girl who sells sweet candy!

Oh' the girl who sells sweet candy!
the one who wears beautiful golden bracelets!
come! you take my heart, roll it snugly like cotton,
lay it in the basket and go without telling anybody!
Will you come? tell me which way?
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan



One's character depends upon his education and inheritance!

The way a person dresses,
…the way he behaves,
the way he misuses the words,
…the way in which he scolds others

are the said four activities
…which depend on his position,
education, his virtuous capacity
and his genetic inheritance.
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan



Parents are the first known Gods, to be taken utmost care!

There was a dispute among brothers,
.....to look after their father
After the death, due to lung secondaries,
.....of their beloved mother!

The mother had undergone
.....resection of colonic carcinoma
Three years earlier in a corporate hospital,
.....with a stigma!

She had an incidental cautery burn
.....on gluteal region
The surgeons said it is an earlier bedsore
.....with a contagion!

They didn't accept
.....it is their personal negligence,
We had no other option,
.....not to take vengeance!

There was a proverb
.....‘the one who has younger brothers
Will not get frightened
.....even for army with soldiers’!

But once the expenditure
.....was going up day by day
Brothers and their wives
.....had altercations each day!

When one says reasonably
.....who is supposed to look after,
They said that eldest son
.....have to look after the parents ever!

But one younger brother utilized
.....their services while they were active,
Once the parents become old and of no help,
.....wanted to get rid off,

Every son has the entire responsibility
.....to take care of their parents
There is none comparable to them
.....since they are the first known Gods!
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
