Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Who Deserves Who?
Desdemona was a lily, pure white;
Othello was a beetle, utter black.
Their consents solemnized their marriage.
So there is no question of who deserved who.
Othello feared the public opinion,
Suspected Desdemona’s fidelity
And put an end to her and to himself.
Liking each other is what deserving each other.
