Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Contempt and acceptance
Familiarity breeds contempt.
A familiar saying, all have heard.
It occurs on a downward journey.
Familiarity gains acceptance also.
It occurs on an upward journey.
The braid sheds her charm while the maid gains hers.
