(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

A house with a deferring wife becomes a forest where tiger lives!


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 dual, that house becomes
a forest with thick bushes where tiger lives!

மனையாளில்லாத மனை

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
