Thirukkural – 1282
One shouldn’t sulk even a grain sized portion-
when seized by palm tree sized passion.
தினைத் துணையும் ஊடாமை வேண்டும்-பனைத் துணையும்
காமம் நிறைய வரின்.
He has been away for long. She’s waiting for him to come back. She is telling to herself, “when he comes back don’t start sulking and spoil the mood, especially when your passion is growing leaps and bounds.” தினை (thinai) – millet and பனை (panai) – palm are used to quantify the sulking and lust.
