A House With A Deferring Wife Becomes A Forest Where Tiger Lives! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
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 duel, that house becomes
a forest with thick bushes where tiger lives!

புலிகிடந்த தூறாய் விடும்.21 – மூதுரை
