Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

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

Where should women fight?


When a man stole a woman
She is branded mud and he a stud.
She is reviled and he, envied.
She is labeled a harlot and he, a starlet.
It is here that women must fight
Against the scale that is skewed
Towards men to their advantage.

    When a man loves again, it is a mark of his manliness, when a woman falls in love again, she is a wore..............there goes English Classics.............it is history, geography and physics and why not biological...............fighting is enough Sir, it is time to reconcile and accept and die peacefully..............

    Stealing a woman can't be done without her consent. The song goes...A man can steal your love, only if your woman lets him. She opted for it and left a suffering man in her wake! Stud and slut deserve each other.

Some say the world will end in fire,

From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
