Diamond

Diamond
though precious, shines not
without light!

Educated man
without ethics - like a
diamond in darkness

Anjan Roy said...

Reminds of a novel of Bibhuti bhusan bandhopadhay...the main character of the story...was trapped in the caves for many days...and in the darkness he could only find few stones thrown here and there...he used it to mark his foot steps as such if he returns to the path again he may realize he had already came here...when he finally escaped the dreaded cave he had one stone left in his pocket an then in the bright sunlight he realised it was nothing but the diamonds...which he usedas a foot steps...!!!

Coming back to the Hiaku totally agree with your thoughts here...similar to the diamonds in darkness educated man without ethics is meaning less...!!!

I love the comparison you've made here; man to diamond and ethics to light. Very true, a person becomes worthless without good ethics no matter how wealthy he is. Beautiful haiku!
