Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. (June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)
Wife’s compliments and contempt.
No better compliment could be
For a husband from his cute wife
When she holds her child as his
Rather than hers, and with it she beams.
No bitter contempt too could be
For a husband from his own wife
When she holds it solely as hers
And avoids projecting as his.
