Good breed not getting education,
Good seed not heading to harvest,
Good women not blushing or the noble erring,
And mismatch marriage don’t do good.

Based on a quadrant verse of Inna Narppathyu (19) of Tamil Literature, having 40 verses on the undesirable

குலத்துப் பிறந்தவன் கல்லாமை யின்னா
நிலத்திட்ட நல்வித்து நாறாமை யின்னா
நலத்தகையார் நாணாமை யின்னாவாங் கின்னா
கலத்தல் குலமில் வழி.19 இன்னா நாற்பது
