Dr.V.K. Kanniappan (17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
Five women are considered as a mother to everyone!
The one who gave birth of self, wife of the elder brothers,
the chaste wife of your teacher, the queen who lives
with your king, the woman who gave birth of your wife;
one can say the above said five women are to be
considered as a good mother to everyone!
