A Day When The Food Eaten All Alone - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

A day
when the food eaten all alone
in the absence of the guests,

A night spent
without accompanying and enjoying
the beautifully dressed and well adorned wife,

The entire day passed
without offering what is needed
to the needy and poor;

The above three are considered
as the disease to the learned
and knowledgeable people.

விருந்தின்றி யுண்ட பகலுந் திருத்திழையார்
புல்லப் புடைபெயராக் கங்குலும் - இல்லார்க்கொன்

நோயே யுரனுடை யார்க்கு.44 திரிகடுகம்
