Cherishing The Kin (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah
521.It is the kindly nature of the kinsmen to cherish
your past help even when penury comes to you.
522.When one has kinsmen of unabated love
His growing wealth will bring all sorts of fortunes.
523.One’s life aloof from the kinsmen is like
A thankful of water without the bank around.
524.The use of attaining wealth by one
Is to be spent for the kindred living around.
525.Giving for their needs and speaking pleasant words
Will make all kinds of relatives to crowd around one.
526.No one has immense relations in this world than the one
who is munificent in giving and able in restraining anger.
527.The crows hide not the food got, call out the kin to share.
Fortune too abides with people of such nature.
528.When the king regards each with respect to his position
Many of his kin will dwell around him for long.
529.The estranged kin will come back to live around him
When the cause of estrangement is no more.
530.when the deserted kinsman comes back for some cause,
The king must fulfill his want, think over and embrace him.
