What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

Three indices may appear in one’s (unstable) body!

Forgetting the lively persons, parents;
Forgetting what they had done to us,
Forgetting our duty to them, scorn and abuse!

Regretting that we lost everything, yes!
When the end comes to the parents
Feeling sorry for their demise!

Feeling ashamed for not doing virtuous deeds
While suffering combined with losing physical health
Due to the ailing incurable disease!

Are the three indices that may appear
In one’s body which is unstable
In this world!

Parents are the Intellectual subjects of life, Fame!
Children have no gratitude towards parents, hush!
And they are considered like objects of unstable body, Shame!

பெறுதிக்கண் பொச்சாந் துரைத்தல் உயிரை
இறுதிக்கண் யாமிழந்தோம் என்றல் - மறுவந்து
தன்னுடம்பு கன்றுங்கால் நாணுதல் இம்மூன்றும்
மன்னா உடம்பின் குறி.91 – திரிகடுகம்
