Don't Consider The Wealth Is Eternal! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

While the wife feeds
the husband, with love and desire,
the different types of foods
prepared with six tastes;

And he takes only one handful,
leaving the rest untouched,
from the quantity of food prepared,
the remaining food is wasted;

However rich,
he is likely to become poor one day
and beg for food in some other place,
Hence don't consider the wealth is eternal!

Note:

Hence don't waste food
and share it with everybody,
Utilize your wealth
for charity!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Hi,
This poem 'Don't consider the wealth is eternal! ' is a translation by me of a poem from Tamil literature 'Naalatiyaar'

அறுசுவை யுண்டி அமர்ந்தில்லாள் ஊட்ட
மறுசிகை நீக்கியுண் டாரும் - வறிஞராய்ச்
சென்றிரப்பர் ஓரிடத்துக் கூழ்எனின், செல்வம்ஒன்
றுண்டாக வைக்கற்பாற் றன்று. - 1 நாலடியார் - செல்வம் நிலையாமை
