Qualities Said To Be Respected By Others As Woman! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
It is said that a woman is supposed to follow
…what the husband feels rightful in his mind;
to have bashfulness said to be the quality of her;
…not to have the desire to own whatever she sees;
not to do as she likes and indifferent to what her husband feels;
…Hence, the one who has beautiful physique and knowledge
living by avoiding such said unwanted activities
…is said to be respected by others as woman!

கொண்டான் குறிப்பொழுகல் கூறிய நாணுடைமை
கண்டது கண்டு விழையாமை - விண்டு
