Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. Poems
A Woman Forty Plus Aspires
I must be the centre of attention And reaffirm my desirability. I must feel validated as a woman And re-experience the romance of love.
Football And Basketball
Let children play football or basketball. They would experience camaraderie, Team spirit and togetherness. They would learn bearing failures and defeats
To Conserve Energy
Energy drains away in discomforts. Pain, fear and anger contribute to it. Energy conserves well in comforts. Peace and happiness squarely promote it.
Love is reckless, reasons not. Reason will seek a profit. Love is aimless; no purpose; Purpose will seek benefit.
To Mourn The Death?
Leaving home for school is a death. Leaving school for service is a death. Retiring from service is a death. Every parting is a death.
Being Wise And Fool
Big gain big loss is a risk. No gain no loss is secure. Small gain small loss is safe. Small gain no loss is wise.
Woman Wants No Equality
Woman and chocolate presented, Man takes woman first. Man and chocolate presented, Woman reaches chocolate first.
Democracy is where Four cats and three rats By a majority decide The menu to follow.
Death And Birth
Death leads to birth rather than birth, to death. Birth is close to death and not vice versa. Every birth is at the result of a death. Death to birth, not birth to death, is the path.
Some parents starve to feed their young ones; Some beg, some toil, some steal or cheat. But the greatest sacrifice parents make Is their fasting from extramarital love.
Empowerment Of Women
How can we arm the one who is already armed? How can women empower themselves, while already in power? Her flesh is the ground and her love, the goal.
Democracy Without Democracy
India is a democracy, With many political parties, Which practice no democracy But sustain dynastic rules.
Love Should Not Cage
Anything in excess is a poison And love by no way is an exception. Growing possessive, love severs the tie. Caged, the beloved wants to flee.
We Are The Adivasis.[india]
We are the adivasis, Those Mundals and Santals, Who had lived in India Before Dravidians did,
The Conept Of The Birth
What is birth? Why is it? Who causes it?
The birth is the fusion of matter and force
That came into being by accident
And since then evolves like planets revolve.
As the wind blows and the water flows
In accordance with the external force
The living things grow and reproduce
In accordance with the external force.
