Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Contempt not to be the intent
He called me black that I am.
He called me old that I am.
He called me by caste that I belong to.
I have been wounded, truth spoken,
As contempt was the intent behind.
Truth that hurts be dropped
