Very cleaver -learn from him:jump::jump:

Speaking without thinking can treble your troubles as this ancient story demonstrates.
A man was caught stealing a bag of onions and taken before a judge.
The judge gave him a choice of three punishments: eat the onions he had stolen at one sitting; submit to a hundred lashes of the whip or pay a fine.
The man said he would eat the onions. He began confidently enough but after eating a few, his eyes began to burn, his nose started running and his mouth felt as if it were on fire.
“I can’t eat the onions,” he said. “Give me the lashes instead.”
But after he had received a few strokes he began to turn and twist to avoid the whip.
“I can’t bear it!” he screamed, finally. “I’ll pay the fine.”
So he paid the fine and was let off, but he became the laughing-stock of the city for having taken three punishments for the same crime.

கந்தல் ஆனாலும் தாய் மடி போல் ஒரு சுகம் வருமா.....வருமா...
சொர்க்கம் சென்றாலும் சொந்த ஊர் போல் சுதந்திரம் வருமா.... வருமா ...
