Begging is disgraceful

ஏற்பது இகழ்ச்சி (Yaerpadhu Yegazhchee)

Begging is disgraceful. Begging is disgraceful in such extent that Tamil great poet Kambhar in his Kambhar Ramayanam wrote:

கடன்கொண்டார் நெஞ்சம் போல; 

கலங்கினான் இலங்கை வேந்தன்

meaning when brave arrows of Lord Rama flew in the war field, Ravana felt fear. Not just fear, the fear you would see in the heart of a person in a debt.

Debt is always dangerous. Auvvaiyar explains beautifully the state of the person who is begging.

Hence leading a life within the income they receive is wise.
