Thirukkurall Tribute to Nelson Mandela: Education


Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. – Nelson Mandela

Thiruvalluvar’s Thirukkurall ~ 497 : Save their own fearless might they need no other aid, If in right place they fight, all due provision made.

You will need no other aid than fearlessness, if you thoroughly reflect (on what you are to do), and select (a suitable) place for your operations.

(English Translation and Commentary by Rev Dr G U Pope, Rev W H Drew, Rev John Lazarus and Mr F W Ellis)
