Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Being plus is the strength


Be good to the good;
Be good to the bad too.
Goodness has strength.

Be honest to the honest;
Be honest to the dishonest too.
Honesty has strength.

Be true to the true one;
Be true to the untrue one too.
Truth has strength.

Be just to the just one;
Be just to others too.
Being just has strength.

Be in love with the one loving;
Be in love with one ignoring.
Love has strength.

Be positive in action;
It generates strength.
It promotes health.
