What You Do Is A Lesson. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Who will join army,
If the widow is not compensated
More than her husband's death in the battle?

Who'll come to rescue,
If one's service fetches no recognition
Or one is soon forgotten by the mass?

Who'll bequeath his wealth,
If one's children no more remember him
And hang not his photo on the wall?

What you do for the martyr
Will stand as guidance for others to note
And decide if they should be a martyr.
