The Wife Should Maintain Morality!

Like the fire that burns and destroys
Self and the supporting wood material,

If the wife, who burns the heart of the husband
by illicit morality, spoils her family life,

What is the use the sacred thread
that is suspending in her neck around?

Instead, if she can make a knot
with it around the neck to hang,

shed the burden of living,
is not the big burden to the land also settle?

Poet Vedhanayakam wishes women to maintain morality
For the welfare of their family, to be respected by the society!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem 'The wife should maintain morality! ' is a gist of one of the poems by Mayuram Vedhanayakam Pillai regarding 'Nature of husband and wife! '

கற்பிலாள் தாலி கழுத்துறு சுருக்கே

தாங்குபொருள் சுட்டழித்துத் தானுமழி யுங்கனல்போல்
தலைவ னெஞ்சைத்
தீங்குகளாற் சுடுமனைவி தன்வாழ்வைக் கெடுத்தலால்
செழுங்கண் டத்தில்
தூங்குதிரு நாணினா லென்னபய னதைக்கழுத்திற்
சுருக்கிக் கொண்டு
தேங்குமுயிர்ப் பொறைநீக்கில் பூமகடன் பெரும்பொறையுந்
தீரு மன்றே.10
