While Your Income Becomes Less, Restrict Your Ways Of Spending! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

O’ man who heads the family!
While your income becomes less,
You restrict your ways of spending!
Don’t desire to spend extensively!

To earn and acquire the wealth
and materials to run the family
is the dignified responsibility
of the men of the family household!

You have to keep one out of five parts
from your total income as savings
to maintain you and your family wise
and for treating your bodily ailments nice!

And last but not least, you save enough
money to conduct your childrens’ marriage!
