Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar. Poems
A Woman Forty Plus Aspires
I must be the centre of attention And reaffirm my desirability. I must feel validated as a woman And re-experience the romance of love.
Be grateful and be helpful. Be grateful if not helpful. Being ungrateful is bad. Be helpful to one even
Where Should Women Fight?
When a man stole a woman She is branded mud and he a stud. She is reviled and he, envied. She is labeled a harlot and he, a starlet.
Child Is One’s Extension.
Cleopatra was the queen of Egypt; Cleopatra was the queen of beauty. She came to the throne at her eighteen The first century BC witnessed it.
Love Without Being Discontent

Death leads to birth rather than birth, to death. Birth is close to death and not vice versa. Every birth is at the result of a death. Death to birth, not birth to death, is the path.
A Beggar I Am.
I show my fake smiles To those I seek, To those I cling to To those I fear
Faith And Trust

A Curse To The Mother
One invalid begs and the other scavenges. One dies in an arson, hailing his leader’s name And the other dies as a suicide bomber.
Beauty is based on four principles:
Harmony, balance, proportion, rhythm.
Beauty must form a triangle
With truth and goodness, to value.
Keeping these in view, create things.
With these in view, conduct yourself.
