Actions On Idea And Ideals - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.
Wants demand actions; fears demand actions.
Idea and ideals set actions.
One acts so as to be what one wants to.
What one has and what one wants set the goal.
A gulf is between idea and action.
If one is not rich, one acts towards it.
If one is not safe, one acts towards it.
To bridge the gap, comes all kinds of action.
The basis for an action is reward
Or fear of loss or fear of punishment.
Such actions are self-evolving ones.
Mankind needs more than that, the ideal.
The ideals are set to become great.
To become good, helpful and generous
Which one is not, is the ideal pursuits.
Action on ideals is real action.
