Philosophy of life taught by our food
(It is only a rewriting in my own style what I got free in Tamil through whatsapp .I thank the original author)
Defeat is like asafoetida ,
It would be bitter to taste,
But if mixed in sambhar the victory,
It would add aroma to it
(Without defeats victory is inspid)
Be always like a pressure cooker,
When pressure mounts ,
Celebrate it by whisting,
And let out all pressure.
(Let out tension by celebrating)
Aim in our life as well as ,
An egg are greatly fragile,
Once it slips it breaks.
(Be stable with your aims)
Laziness is like the stalk of chillies
For adding pungency, It should be nipped.
(Laziness should be nipped off for adding pungency to life)
Life is complicated like Idiyappam(rice noodles),
If you add the love called coconut milk ,
Complications would indeed disappear
(Love removes knots and complications)
Lie is as slippery as noodles,
But Truth is as stable as an Idli.
(Lies give temporary victory only)
Anger is much more like salt ,
When used in excess , life is not tastey.
(Too much anger leads us no where)
Delayed victory is like fried savouries,
WE get after we loose our teeth ,
You cannot enjoy what you get.
(you should get everything in time )
Formula for self confidence ,
Is like the recipes we get for cooking,
Using them properly is in your hands.
(Achieving victory by using known methods are in your hands)
Achieving victory is like cooking Idli,
Only after you cook you will know,
Whether it is useful or well cooked
(Only after completion of a job , we know whether we have won or not)
Enjoying victory is like eating Idli,
Without friends to share , yoiu cannot enjoy,
And without side dishes Idli would not be tastey
(to enjoy anything , company is needed)
