Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Marriage is not a mockery.
Man and woman fell in love to commit,
Married to commit and begot to commit.
They were together throughout to commit.
The other one remained as a widow
Or a widower, again to commit.
The commitment was the purpose of life.
With escapism in mind don’t enter
Into marriage and make a mockery of it.
