Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Efforts and Merits


The one atop the tenth step,
Has stooped ten times to reach it.
The one atop the twelfth step,
Has stooped twelve times to reach it.
The one who minded stooping
Was happy to be on the floor.
The world recognizes
The efforts and not the merits.
