Kural - 557

Kural 557
Holy Kural #557
As lack of rain to thirsty lands beneath,
Is lack of grace in kings to all that breathe

As is the world without rain, so live a people whose king is without kindness.

Tamil Transliteration
Thuliyinmai Gnaalaththirku Etratre Vendhan
Aliyinmai Vaazhum Uyirkku.
