Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Who Is To Be Blamed?
The tendency to give concession
Has come down as the tendency
To claim it as a matter of right
Has risen among the recipients.
The tendency to offer succour
Has declined as the tendency
To requite it or show gratitude
Has slowed down among the beneficiaries.
