S. Vairamuthu – 1983 M – Coffee Table Book
Love after marriage is far more important than love before marriage since the former brings in responsibility !! Friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship said John D. Rockefeller. This was proved wrong by Mr Vairamuthu and his partner in business Mr Suresh since their business and relationship over three decades follows the paradigm “Every great businessis built on friendship.” Mr S. Vairamuthu and N.V. Suresh are a living testimony to that. Knowing each other over 30 years, right from when they were first employed in Ashok Leyland, to doing MBA together and now running a business since 1997 in the name of Sarang auto parts (P) Ltd in Ambattur is a phenomenal success !! A friendship that can end never really began !! Suresh’s daughter and Vairamuthu’s son have now joined the business after their Master’s degree.
Relationships are based on four principles: Respect, Understanding, Acceptance and Appreciation. No one is perfect, that is why understanding is so important. True love is born from understanding. When you understand things as they are it shows that you are a mature person. Maurity is the ability to respond to the environment being aware of the correct time and location to behave and knowing when to act according to the circumstances and equanimity means calmness and composure, especially in a difficult situation. Vairamuthu maintains relationships following the four principles and is emotionally mature. Emotional maturity is not about avoiding emotions but it is about avoiding emotional drama. Emotions – yes, Emotional drama – no !!
