Art Is For The Rich - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Raja Ravi Varma, a great painter,
Gave forms to Lakshmi and saraswathi,
The mythological goddesses of the Hindus.
And to Sakunthala of Poet Kalidasa.
Could have he become what he had in life
Had he been born and brought up in a slum
With all the time struggling for existence?
Fertility of the seed counts in the soil.
