Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
To be homely is lovely
Women of beauty!
The intellectuals and the executives,
Simple with no extravaganza,
Still command men’s awe.
Others, glamorous, lascivious,
Or in excess of costumes and cosmetics,
Would evoke in you a liberality.
Be simple and homely;
You’re winsome and comely.
