Mother vs wife –what does our epics say?
Compiled by a confused
1.About wife Mahabharatha says that
Na cha Bharya samam kinchith vidhyathe, BHishajaam matham,
Oushadham sarva dukheshu, Sathyamedath braveemi they
Nothing in the world equals wife and doctor opines,
She is the medicine for all sorrow, This is truth being told
2.About mother Mahabharatha sats that
Mathraa samo naasthi sareera poshane ,
Bharya samo nassthi Sareera doshane
For nurturing the body , there is nothing like mother,
And for spoiling the body , there is nothing like wife
Does it mean that medicine spoils the body?
