Purananuru 281

This poem explains the treatment of chest wounded warrior by his wife with her girl-friends.
Let us do something:
Put in the thatched roof of the house entrance some leaves of Mango tree and Neem tree.
Let us play yazh sting-instrument and other drums.
Apply us hands gently on his body to remove pain.
Apply some creams.
Apply some mustard-oil on the wound.
Let us play flout-music.
Ring the bell with lullaby song to make him sleep.
Make entire room fill with fragrant smell.
This is the way, we have to treat him.
You, my friends, please co-operate with me.
He is hero who saved the king the attack of the opponent.
