traditional wisdom - 1

this current month in the tamil calendar is purattasi (mid sept to mid oct).

it is known for its hot days as well as good showers from the late/retreating SW monsoon and early NE monsoon.

so the saying to describe puratassi is:
pon uruga kaayum, man uruga peyyum (பொன் உருக காயும், மண் உருக பெய்யும்)
it is hot enough to melt gold, and pours enough to melt the soil.
