Do all things ancient ought, to be true and noble?

Ancient Things - Subramanya Bharati

Do you argue, that things ancient ought, on that account, to be true and noble? Fallacies and Falsehoods there were from time immemorial, and dare you argue that because these are ancient these should prevail?

In ancient times, do you think that there was not the ignorant, and the shallow minded? And why after all should you embrace so fondly a carcass of dead thoughts. Live in the present and shape the future, do not be casting lingering looks to the distant past for the past has passed away, never again to return.

- Subramanya Bharathi
