The Usage is actually taken from the Verse(s) of English+Malayalam Holy Bible.

Ecclesiastes 5:12

The sleep of a laboring man is sweet, Whether he eats little or much; But the abundance of the rich will not permit him to sleep.

വേലചെയ്യുന്ന മനുഷ്യൻ അല്പമോ അധികമോ ഭക്ഷിച്ചാലും അവന്റെ ഉറക്കം സുഖകരമാകുന്നു; ധനവാന്റെ സമൃദ്ധിയോ അവനെ ഉറങ്ങുവാൻ സമ്മതിക്കുന്നില്ല.

Proverbs 6:4

Give no sleep to your eyes, Nor slumber to your eyelids.

നിന്റെ കണ്ണിന്നു ഉറക്കവും നിന്റെ കണ്ണിമെക്കു നിദ്രയും കൊടുക്കരുതു.

Proverbs 4:16

For they do not sleep unless they have done evil; And their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall.

അവർ ദോഷം ചെയ്തിട്ടല്ലാതെ ഉറങ്ങുകയില്ല; വല്ലവരെയും വീഴിച്ചിട്ടല്ലാതെ അവർക്കും ഉറക്കം വരികയില്ല.
