Dr.V.K. Kanniappan (17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
A house with a deferring wife becomes a forest where tiger lives!
One can’t say the house sans nothing
while one is having a chaste and good
hearted wife in the house; he has everything!
while there is no wife and there is a wife who defers
and confronts with wordy dual, that house becomes
a forest with thick bushes where tiger lives!
