Kudicheyal vakai-103rd chapter of Thirukural-
(Ability to enhance prestige of our family)
(No family grows up unless some one works for it and sacrifices everything. Thiruvalluvar calls such a person as store house of all sorrows. I wish that this great chapter should be read by all the young Indians.)
