From ‘M. R. Pai. The Story of an uncommon common man’ by S V Raju

This world lives
Some men
do not eat alone
not even when they get
the sweet ambrosia of the gods;

they’ve no anger in them,
they fear evils other men fear
but never sleep over them;

give their lives for honour,
will not touch gift of whole worlds
if tainted;

there’s no faintness in their hearts
and they do not strive
for themselves.

Because such men are,
This world is.

Sangam Tamil Poet

“A bell is no bell till you ring it; a song is no song till you sing it. And love is no love till you express it, or give it.”
