Thirukkural – 738.
Good health, wealth, fertility, happiness and security –
these five are said to be adornments of a country.
பிணி இன்மை, செல்வம், விளைவு, இன்பம், ஏமம்-
அணி என்ப, நாட்டிற்கு-இவ் ஐந்து.
Wise men say absence of disease, citizen’s wealth, fertile land, happiness of people and security are jewels of a country. I have translated ‘Absence of disease’ as ‘Good Health’. Republic Day wishes, fellow Indians.
