Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Unless one is submissive…
‘What is the secret of your fifty year of marriage? ’
‘Simple, immediately after marriage,
I saw her shoot her horse to my alarm.
She said that she did it as he disobeyed.’
Since then I haven’t disobeyed her..
No partnership works unless one’s sleeps.
