Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

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

Lust is only flame


Lust is a must to start with.
Trust is a must to last with.
Then sustains marital interest.
Trustless lust wrecks the boat.
Lust-less trust floats the boat.
Both together make it sail.
A wife merits by her loyalty
And husband by his sincerity
As the family is the bed of trust,
More than a bed of roses.
