Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Forgiveness Is An Effort
Retaliation comes in spurts;
Forgiveness is brought with efforts.
If you don’t forgive kin or friends
You will break the bridge made for them.
If you don’t forgive a stranger
You will miss a bridge he would make.
Forgiveness maintains harmony;
Retaliation will break it.
