It Tastes Like Nectar!
To be an unwanted guest
by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
sitting alone in the absence of the host
eating food 'hot and shining like an eye of a cat',
It is not delicious, but considered 'bitter like neem';
If you happen to eat in a house
where you are greeted kindly with respect,
the host also accompanies you to dine,
however they are poor;
Even if they provide cold watery gruel,
prepared with poor quality rice grains,
It tastes like Nectar,
imbibes with your mind and body.
