is it ? does not haathi and kathi do not rhyme??
They DO rhyme but are the connected in any other way like
kaththi and suththi ( both are weapons)
thAthA and pOthA ( both are males)
thAthi and pEththi (both are females)
nEthA and janathA ( both are humanas)
kari and nari (both are animals)
madhi and nadhi (both adorn Lord Siva's head)
'maNdu' rhymes very well with 'guNdu' but it will make sense only when we are able to find a person who is both maNdu and guNdu! :)

Actually we don't have to search for a guNdu since almost all
(both genders and of all ages ) will be guNdus there.
As for maNdus we can read from their facial expression! :)

    International Women's Day: The 25 best books by female authors
    There is no avoiding the bitter truth: the literary canon remains dominated by the works of men. History has seen its share of breakthrough successes - from Jane Austen to the Brontës - but each woman who has carved her name in the hall of fame only did so after she overcame the various obstacles faced by those of her gender. Some, like Mary Anne Evans, found the need to write under the guise of a man in order to be heard at all - we know her better now as George Eliot.

So what happens to the sweat of the person wearing it?

Man adrift in Pacific Ocean survives for hours by inflating his jeans
A man stranded 20 miles off the coast of New Zealand survived after inflating his jeans with a series of knots - helping him stay afloat in the Pacific Ocean for more than three hours. German sailor Arne Murke, 30, was sailing a 12-metre yacht from Auckland to Brazil with his brother when he was knocked overboard by the boat’s swinging boom. After failing to reach a lifejacket thrown by his brother, Mr Murke found himself cast adrift in rough conditions, 20 miles off Tolaga Bay on New Zealand’s east coast.

    White House budget proposal tightens the screws on science, from space to salmon
    The White House’s $4.7 trillion spending plan for fiscal year 2020 aims to give a boost to the Space Force, but would dial down work on NASA’s Space Launch System, zero out the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope, leave salmon in the lurch and slash science spending on other fronts. When it comes to outer space, the brightest spotlight falls on lunar exploration and space commercialization - which is in line with the priorities of the National Space Council, headed by Vice President Mike Pence. And when it comes to earthly realms in science and technology, artificial intelligence and quantum… Read More
