The rain is the nectar from the clouds!

Because of the pouring of rain periodically
The living beings are existent permanently!

Hence everybody should feel and realize
That rain is the NECTAR from the clouds!

NECTAR – It is the drink of the Gods,
when it is drunk, it provides long life,
Mortals who ate it became immortal!

    It is a simple Tamil poem of seven words only, by a Great Poet Thiruvalluvar saying water is very essential for the living beings and plants. We get water from periodical rain during seasons! (Report) Reply
