Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Apparent and latent
When you are struck with a woman’s apparent beauty
You lose interest in it if not coped with her latent beauty.
If you are moved by a woman’s latent beauty
You are not tired; her apparent beauty matches or not.
Love one for the fire
And not for the hair.
