Apt

This is one of my favourite Tamil aphorisms

Paramasivan kazhuthul iruntha pambu kaetadhu "Garuda Saukiyama"

Adhuku Garudan sonathu" Yavum irukum idathil irunthu vital yellam saukiyamae"


It puts across a fact of life so wonderfully, and also explains why we people act the way we do at times.

I am not going to attempt translating for the fear of distorting it.
