Chapter Two
GLORY OF RAIN
11.
On rain, rests the world
Sure for its prosperity
Treat rain –nectar bold! (11)

12.
It helps grow great food
Sans water no agriculture
Quenches thirsty world! (12)

13.
Water all in sea
Helps not life on earth so well
Rain water gives glee! (13)

14.
Rain sustains the world
Makes the fertile land yield more
Sans farmers can’t mould! (14)
15.
By absence, rain destroys
Life, living, people and the world
By care it creates! (15)
16.
If rain fails to grace
The earth with its compassion
No grass you can trace! (16)
17.
Ocean becomes dry
When the sky bears not the clouds
People made to cry! (17)
18.
Rain – gift of nature
Whenever denied to the world
Bleak – nobles’ future! (18)
19.
When powerful rain fails
Noble charity gets failed
Nobles’ penance falls! (19)
20.
Sans water no life
When the Lord of Rain conspires
Virtue faces knife! (20)

  1. Nice Morning Sir!
    Thirukural – 2 tells about Rain, the very base of our existence!
    If rain fails to grace
    the earth with its consumption,
    no grass you can trace….. What a fantastic translation…!
    This reveals your STRONG TASTE in our traditional old Thirukkural!
    I enjoyed reading Sir!
    Thanks,
    Yours,
    G Vasu
