Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Dearly is lovely.
To woo a woman, forbidden and formidable,
And pine endlessly for her union, though in vain,
Rather than indulging in sex with one, accessible,
Is everlasting superb. She is hence to me ever dear.
Corporal love lasts not;
Forbidden love ends not;
Formidable love rests not.
