Husband and Wife Should Be United By Mind And Heart!

Said with praise, conjugal life as cart,
Family life as cargo spread over the cart,
As if two horses tied to the cart,

Husband and wife united by mind and heart,
Their aim should be one and the same,
They should lead a balanced life!

If not, the cart will break down,
The cargo is thrown out and wasted,
God, the charioteer, who drives the cart,

Shall get angry over both the horses,
So called husband and wife
And make them to grieve!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'Husband and wife should be united by mind and heart! ' is a gist of one of the poems by Mayuram Vedhanayakam Pillai regarding 'Nature of husband and wife! '

மனங்கலவாக் காதலரை பரமனெனும் சாரதி வருத்தும்

பரவசமு சாரமெனும் பண்டியில்வாழ்
வெனும்பொருளைப் பரப்பிப் பூண்ட
புரவிகள்போல் காந்தனுங்காந் தையுமைந்தார்
மனமொத்தோர் போக்கை நாடி
விரவொடுமே காரென்னின் ஊர்தியொடப்
பொருள்விளியும் விண்பு ரக்கும்
பரமனெனுஞ் சாரதியப் பரிகண்மேற்
சினமுற்றுப் படர்செய் வானே.8
