If the income of the husband is small..?
If the area and size of the lake is small; and
The incoming quantity of water is more,
It is natural the water overflows and wasted!
If the income of the husband is small; and
He cannot meet out the household expenses,
The wife will be talkative and abusive!
If good deeds you had done in previous birth
Is small and not helping others who are in need;
You get lot of difficulties vested on you in this life!
If your strength is small and you are weak,
It is difficult to manage in difficult situations,
You may have lot of enemies to fight!
