    Dear All,
    I am very happy that you are all enjoying the proverbs very much - the no: of views say it all. This week, I am posting proverbs beginning with " இ".
    In translation, the beauty is lost to a certain extent, there is no denying it !

    1 - இங்கே தலையைக் காட்டுகிறான்
    அங்கே வாலைக் காட்டுகிறான்

    A man shows his different facets in different places.

    2 - இஞ்சி என்றால் தெரியாதா
    வெல்லம் போலப் புளிப்பாய் இருக்குமே

    Don't you know what ginger is ?
    It is sour like jaggery !

    3 - இட்ட அடி கொப்புளிக்க
    எடுத்த அடி தள்ளாட

    Walking in very delicate steps

    4 - இட்டது எல்லாம் பயிர் ஆகுமா?
    பெற்றது எல்லாம் பிள்ளை ஆகுமா

    All the seeds you plant may not grow healthy
    All your children may not prove worthy

    5 - இட்டாருக்கு இட வேணும்
    செத்தாருக்கு அழ வேணும்

    You must help a person who has helped you
    You must cry for one who is dead

    6 - இடம் அகப்படாத தோஷம் மெத்தப் பதிவிரதை

    This is a naughty proverb! A woman remains chaste for want of an opportunity !

    7 - இடம் இராத இடத்தில் அகமுடையானை பெற்றவள் வந்தாளாம்;
    போறாத குறைக்குப் புக்ககத்து அத்தையும்ம்வந்தாளாம் !

    Already the house is very small; MIL has come; not only that, husband's aunt has also come.

    8 - இடி இடி எங்கே போகிறாய் ?
    ஏழையின் தலையில் விழப் போகிறேன் !

    Misfortune befalls a poor man!

    9 - இடிக்கிறவன் ஒன்றை நினைத்துக் கொண்டு இடித்தால்
    குடிக்கிறவன் ஒன்றை நினைத்துக் கொண்டு குடிப்பான்

    The one who "pounds" can do it mechanically, thinking of something else. The same is the case with a drunkard.

    10 - இடிக்குக் குடை பிடிக்கலாமா?

    An umbrella does not serve the purpose when there is thunder.

    11 - இடித்தவளுக்கும் புடைத்தவளுக்கும் ஒன்று
    ஏன் என்று வந்தவளுக்கு இரண்டு

    The ladies who do the work, each, get only one share
    The lady who casually dropped in got double the share

    12 - இடுகிறவன்(ள்) தன்னவன்(ள்) ஆனால் இடைப்பந்தியில்ல இருந்தால் என்ன கடைப்பந்தியில் இருந்தால் என்ன ?

    If the spouse is serving food, you will definitely get your share !

    13 - இடுப்பில் இரண்டு காசு இருந்தால், சருக்கென்று இரண்டு வார்த்தை வரும் !

    If there is money in your pocket, you can be sharp with your words.


    14 - இடுப்புக்கு மேலே அந்தரங்கம் இல்லை

    This is too naughty to translate !!!!

    15 - இடைச்சன் பிள்ளைக்காரிக்குத் தலைச்சன் பிள்ளைக்காரி மருத்துவம் சொன்னாளாம்

    The lady who is the first time mother, advises a lady who is already a mother.

    16 - இத்தனை பெரியவர் கைப்பிடித்து இழுத்தால், மாட்டேன் என்று எப்படி சொல்வது ?

    This is yet another naughty one ! ( a woman says) How can I say no to an elderly man when he seeks me !

    17 - இத்தனை பேர் பெண்டுகளில் என் பிள்ளைக்கு ஒரு தாய் இல்லை

    There are so many women - but my son has no mother.
    You can interpret it in many ways.

    18 - இம்முனு போனாளாம்; பிள்ளையைப் பெற்றாளாம்

    This lady just went - delivered at once ( effortlessly)

    19 - இரவல் உடமையும் இல்லாதாள் புடவையும் அவிசாரி அகமுடையானும் ஆபத்துக்கு உதவா

    A borrowed object, dress of a poor woman, the husband of a loose woman - all these will never come to your rescue.

    20 - இட்டபடியே ஒழிய ஆசைப்பட்டு பலன் இல்லை

    Que sera sera, whatever will be, will be.

    There are many proverbs beginning with " இ", but I am posting the less common ones.

    love & regards,
    Chithra.

    My dear Preethi, my "boNi" girl !

    I do not plan to give the more popular proverbs, rather prefer to give the less popular ones, so that you can all enjoy !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    இறைக்கிற கேணி ஊறும்

    Regular use increases the efficiency.

    My dear Sudha !

    Beware, somebody is teasing you !!
    I may not take your side because we both are, all said & done, orae oorkaraa !
    ( Ready to pounce on me, Sudha? - ha ha ha). Take it in the lighter vain, all said & done, you are also enga ooru marumakal ! I will never let you down.

    Please do remember that in every thread I start, I miss you, if you don't participate !!

    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Does the following suit you, Sudha ?

    ஆடிய காலும் பாடிய நாவும் சும்மா இருக்காது

    A dancer & a musician can never keep quiet !
