The Quality Of Elephant’s Milk And Its Usefulness! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

The milk obtained from mother elephant
…will be so sweet like a mixture of cow’s milk mixed
with honey from the flowers of much pollen grains!

It cures rheumatism, provides increased
…strength and improves sexual secretion;
It enhances the physical complexion!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This 'The quality of elephant’s milk and its usefulness! ' is an interpretation of a medical poem by an ascetic.

வாதம்போந் தாதுபுஷ்டி வந்தடரும் வன்பலமோ
யாதுபித்தங் கூடி யழகுதிக்குந் – தாதுமலர்த்
தேனைப்பா லிற்கலந்த தித்தீப்பைப் போலிருக்கும்
யானைப்பா லுண்ணு மவர்க்கு.
