Awards Are Bought - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.
‘Sir, this issue, we want to publish
about you. Please send your write up
along with a bank cheque, please..’
‘Sir, this year you inaugurate the festival
and bear the expenditure’
‘We like to honour you with the best actor award.
How much can you contribute, sir.’
‘Madam, can you meet the chief in his guest house.
You are likely to get foreign assignment.’
Where you are, not how you came, matters
Rewards are not built on merits.
