Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

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

That is big to one which is small.


The candle flame is bright in a dark room.
The electric light is dimmer in the day.
A shrub looks bigger to a pine seedling.
An oak is not big to the adult pine.
The childhood leaders stand more than their dues
And the present big leaders look smaller.
