"Kalavum Katru Mara"

Meaning 'Learn the Art of Thievery and forget'. Its a saying in Tamil..from the old days..

The world took it too serious and we have b schools. Schools that churn our suave, articulate, well groomed, well dressed 'beings' that knows only one way of operation.. in line with famed 'Have breakfast or be breakfast'.

Be innovative to 'crush competition' , we are told. Innovation is the famed jargon used to shield progress made to meet man's needs and wants alike, more so to feed on man's boredom, vice and sloth.

Right livelihood, ethics etc are studied and looked upon as obsolete and topics for summer casual reading. We might have our future generations reading them as topics of history.

Hey, I came across your site when looking for greater details on 'kalavum katru mara'. You were quite pertinent about the kural's relations to Educational systems.

Lastly, I see your life philosophies are quite similar to that of me, care you connect with me ?.
