Unfortunately the society is beset with frauds and fraudsters. The following are Ten Thirukkural Couplets translated by me into English. Wortds of wisdom that came from Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar more than 2000 years ago: This indeed the u8rgent need of the hour!

1.
Indulge not in fraud
If not to be insulted
Guard from evil deeds!                                                 (281)
2.
It brings awful woes
Very thought of defrauding
Coveting others!                                                           (282)
3.
Wealth through coveting
Disappears in no time
A sin – demeaning!                                                       (283)
4
Fruits of fraud and greed
Though seem sweet, bring bitter woes
Attempt and get freed!                                                 (284)
5.
To show love and grace
Is not the wont of a fraud
He covets and falls!                                                      (285)
6.
Whose life uncontrolled
Go with love and lust for fraud
Get bad uncontrolled!                                                   (286)
7.
Those who know their strength
Know well the evils of fraud
Indulge not a length!                                                    (287)
8.
Fraudulent mind stands
As a virtuous thought holds
Hold to virtue strong!                                                   (288)
9.
Evil thoughts bring doom
They sure suffer and perish
Shun fraud, avoid gloom!                                             (289)
10.
Fraudulent falls sure
Liability on earth
Heaven greets the pure!                                                (290)
