Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Virtue and love


A deer must run faster than a tiger.
A tiger must run faster than a deer.
Be a deer or a tiger, you must run.
No amount of virtue would save your life.

A male dove should protect a female one.
A female dove should protect its chicks.
Be a male or a female, you must protect.
No amount of loving will ensure safety.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
