Varadaraja Raman

 "Upanishads we read: satyam vada,  dharmam cara:  Speak the truth, follow the path of dharma. Note that Auvaiyār is not instructing us to do the right thing, but to cultivate a desire to do the right thing. Once that desire is inculcated in a person, doing the right thing will become natural. We are reminded of the saying: Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. Auvaiyār could have added: mei cholla virumbu: Desire to speak the truth.   2."
