Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
The identity and its cause
I did for parents as I stood by parents.
I did for siblings as they stood as my
I did for my wife and children later
As they are seen as my branches.
I did for women whom I wooed and
With the hope of getting them.
I was the net loser, losing happily.
Identity with one makes you that one.
