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
