Get Out!

To say the words ‘Get Out’ to anybody
whomsoever is extremely rude and brutal!
There is no rudeness in the words as such,
But the way these words are told, too much!

The circumstances, it is heard
by the involved and affected person,
The shock and mental breakdown
these words produce are definitely brutal!

While I was busily preparing to settle and write,
I heard a call, ‘Sir, Sir’ dignified and humble
I was little irritated and came down from upstairs
to see an Anglo Indian poor man with a pathetic smile!

He used to come every now and then,
Wishing me politely ‘Good morning Sir’
Whether I offer money or not, he greets me,
He had a pathetic facial expression!

I used to offer him money sometimes,
Hence he visited me this time also; the voice
made me to think of some unknown person,
I am disappointed by the dignified voice to see him!

I lost my sense and shouted at him,
“You have no business to call me, GET OUT”
And went up the stairs; the feeble voice
I heard with regret and tears, “Pardon me Sir”!

I had the ‘Stair case thought’,
for my behavior towards the poor man,
I felt extremely ashamed for my outburst,
I offered him now, more money with respect!

That is the way of asking him for apology,
Still he blessed me ‘God bless you Sir’ gently!
I realized later that one can say ‘NO’ to somebody,
But not to offend by saying GET OUT to anybody!
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan



Getting Friendship With People Is Nice!

Having children who carry out
…what you ordered without refusing is nice!

Learning knowledge everyday
…without going into disgrace is so nice!

For a person who has oxen to plow,
…doing farm work itself is nice!

Similarly, whichever direction you go,
…getting friendship with people is nice!
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan



Ghost Mother Was Listening The Tv Serial!

TV serial in Raj TV,
Sindhu Bairavi! seen by
My elderly mother regularly!

Daily, Daily, Daily Everyday,
But for Saturday and Sunday,
A great relief to me!

The serial has successfully crossed
eight hundred and forty six episodes;
It is going on like Hanuman’s tail!

I happened to hear the dialogues,
Since I am preparing some articles
In my computer adjacent to television!

I know the names of a few characters,
Sindhu, Bairavi, Vir, Beem, Muktha,
Mahathi, Kanna, Gunavanthi and Thamarai!

No two characters will accept what others say,
One says yes, other will say no!
If the other says yes, the first one says no!

Controversy! Controversy!
The characters arguing with each other,
I thought whether the serial will end one day..!

Who knows? Nobody knows!
I was worrying what will happen
If my ill mother passes away!

But fortunately she said one day,
“Son, If I die and pass way,
You do me a favor”.

I asked what I should do,
She said that she will come as a ghost
And sit in her usual chair everyday!

We were shocked to hear her words!
Another three months, she went sick
And passed away peacefully!

The ceremonies were over silently,
Everybody returned to their hometown happily,
We forgot everything easily!

But to our surprise,
When we sat for continuing sindhu bairavi serial,
We felt gentle breeze and heard sound of moving chair!

We were shocked to hear that sound,
We felt the fragrance of our mother,
Hissing noise heard in my ears ‘I have come”

We are little frightened,
But why while our mother had visited,
She was quietly listening!

When the episode is over,
We hear the chair moving sound,
The mother’s fragrance fades away!

The serial extended for another one year,
On her birthday of may,29, the serial
Ended with marriage of Mahathi, daughter of Sindhu!

My mother was coming on all days,
We offered her snacks, Of course,
we ate it after the serial was over!

The serial ended,
Mother didn't come afterwards,
All well; that ends well!
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan



Give Up Smoking Tobacco

A traveller walks with crutches,
passing by me with one leg stretches,
Other leg amputated above the knee,
Enquired I, Why? How?

Said he, one toe became black,
Reduced blood circulation to the little toe
and circulation to adjacent toes
also getting cut;

The history is that he was a smoker
of Beedi - rolled tobacco leaves -
Smoking of Beedi leads to narrowing of blood vessels
supplying the toes, results in clotting of blood;

The toes get gangrenous,
tissue death extends towards the hip
necessitating in amputation
of toes to midthigh;

Give up smoking tobacco
to escape from death of tissues
and removal of toes and lower limbs,
Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
