Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Fear is the lever
Fear of starvation drives you to prey
Fear of downfall drives you to fight.
Fear of injury causes the lust for power.
Fear of instability induces love for women
Fear is not the break of one’s action.
It is the very lever of one’s action.
