Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
To love, shed self-love.
Unless one stops loving oneself,
One cannot love well another.
Love demands some sacrifices
For which selfishness must drain down.
Sexual love and mother's love do it.
Let love of other kinds ape them.
