Thirukkural – 1104
Scorching when afar, soothing when near,
where did she find such a fire?
நீங்கின் தெறூஉம்,குறுகுங்கால் தண்ணென்னும்,
தீ யாண்டுப் பெற்றாள்,இவள்?
Thirukkural 1104. A fire scorches when you are near and becomes less warm as you move away from it. But this girl’s fire (her passion) burns me when I am away from her but soothes me and relieves my pain as I embrace her.
