(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

The wise people will save you as much as they can!


As much as the men cut and shorten, the rest of the tree
provides cool shade by hiding the sunshine, you see!

How much ever worst evils you had done till their death,
the wise people will save you as much as they can!
