Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
To be human
Be less than human in harshness
And more than human in kindness.
Spirit of tolerance be greater
Than the strength of deliverance.
Concern for others be deeper
Than the comforts sought after.
It is called civic sense that
You must cultivate to be human.
