Faulty activities lead to the suffering of the people!
To go and see the funny orgy
While going as uninvited guest, nay! 1
A person, who is incapable to sing pleasantly,
Trying to sing and play in the audience eagerly!
To say undeserving, offending words in society
Even while he is not under the influence of toddy! 2
To go frequently and stay under the shelter
Of a person who is not confident of you for ever! 3
Are the three faulty activities that lead
To the suffering of the people around him!
