Purananuru # 140

greens to cook 

The female poet says. You poets, be careful while requesting gifts from warrior Nanjil Porunan. Once, I and my dancing mates get some greens to cook. We want some rice to add in cooking. We requested him to give some rice. He weighed his magnanimity and my capacity. He thought to give some rice is below his dignity. So he gave us an elephant suitable to his dignity. Hence, you the poets, be careful.
