Some family conundrums
(A feeble attempt based on a very pretty essay in tamil on கொஞ்சம் கவனிக்கவேண்டியவை.(Some things that need to be cared for by J.K. SIVAN. I hope he will excuse me)
1.Husband is in a hurry to go out some where,
But wife spends lots, lote and lots of time ,
In dressing , chatting almost nothing with her friends,
And Would not this irritate that poor man.
2.He does not bother to reduce AC when she feels cool,
He does not bother about his sleep while watching TV news loudly,
He does not switch off light , allowing her to sleep,
Would they not irritate her who has day of hard work ahead.
3,Men do not control gobbling of tasty food and become fat,
Women goes on not eating endlessly, making her endlessly irritable,
He wants her to be slim but eat food, though he never thinks of his looks,
Would these not irritate each other and make life miserable.
4.A woman does not want , her husband to appreciate beauty of another girl,
And he does not want her to talk of any man of her pre marriage life,
Men are jealous of their wives and they keep on dreaming of girls with whom he talks,
Would not these mutual attitudes make their family life miserable.
5.The husband wants his wife to only cook dishes in his mummy’s way ,
And he never allows her to order the dishes she likes in any hotel,
And she knowing well , his likes , cooks everything her mummy’s way,
Would not these mutual torture make their family life miserable.
6.There is nothing in the world that is impossible to him, he says
And it is also true that he fails to do all those miserably,
She says she is a super cook but all her dishes are difficult to eat,
Would not accepting what you are make family life less miserable.
7.Promising one thing and doing just the opposite,
Acting as if you love your in laws while you are really hating them,
Telling every one that the other person is a boss while they are slaves,
Would not these contradictions in life make it miserable.
8.Bombarding children in front of husband but telling the child,
In private that she only loves them and would give them what they want,
Without the knowledge of the husband and making them smile ,
Makes the children take up to wrong ways and makes them hate their father.
9.A husband not bothering about the life and health of his wife,
And being very sensitive of even a sneeze of his own,
And a husband thinking that he is the king and she his slave,
Would not these attitudes make family life miserable.
10.A husband would be spending all his time in whatsapp and facebook,
A wife would be day and night busy on watching lengthy serials in TV,
Making both of them having no time to discuss and take important decisions,
Would not this type of life , lead their life to be full of misery,
