A House With A Deferring Wife Becomes A Forest Where Tiger Lives! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

One can’t say the house sans nothing
while one is having a chaste and good
hearted wife in the house; he has everything!

while there is no wife and there is a wife who defers
and confronts with wordy duel, that house becomes
a forest with thick bushes where tiger lives!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'A house with a deferring wife becomes a forest where tiger lives! ' is a translation of a poem from Tamil literature from 'moothurai' by Poetess AVVAI of 12th century.

மனையாளில்லாத மனை

இல்லா ளகத்திருக்க இல்லாத தொன்றில்லை
இல்லாளும் இல்லாளே யாமாயின் - இல்லாள்
வலிகிடந்த மாற்ற முரைக்குமேல் அவ்வில்
புலிகிடந்த தூறாய் விடும்.21 – மூதுரை
