Don’t underestimate the persons with their small stature!


The petals of Pandanus fascicularis flowers are long,
The petals of Mimusops elengi flower are short,
The fragrance of this flower is grander than the other!

The ocean is large, but the water is unsuitable
for washing the dirt from our body; but the water
springing from the adjacent pit is suitable for drinks.

So, don’t underestimate the persons with
their appearance and small stature forthwith,
They may be superior by character and virtue!

உருவமும் குணமும்

மடல்பெரிது தாழை மகிழினிது கந்தம்
