Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Be a Bhishma of the Mahabharat
Let the lone mother find her lover.
Let the lone father seek his beloved.
Children must act as a catalyst
And be a Bhishma in their approach.
[Bhishma in the Epic Mahabharath, helped his widower father remarry the desired fisherwoman, sacrificing the throne for himself and observed celibacy as precondition for that marriage ]
