Good Proverbs - Subhashitaani # 2

When it catches fire in forest, wind is there to assist it.(sakha bhavati marutah). Same wind destroys a small lamp(sa eva deep nashayay). If one dosen't have power/wealth, he does not have friends (krshe kasyaasti sahrdam ). In other words, one will support you if you are powerful or else the same will destroy you.

A crooked man's (Durjan) Knowledge (Vidya) is used by him only for the arguments (ViVaad), his Wealth (Dhanam) results in him becomming an egoistic (Madaaya) person and his Power (Shakthi) is used just to trouble others (Paripidaanaaya). The opposite is true for a good man (sajjan). His Knowledge (Vidya) is used for good purposes, his wealth is used to donate (Daanaaya) it to others and his power/might is used to protect (Rakshanaaya) the weak.

The strength (Balam) of the weak (Durbal) is King (Raja) [The king is expected to protect the weak]. Crying(Rodanam) is the strength of a small child [Parents accede to the child's demand due to the child's crying. Thus crying is the strength of a child as it can get what it desires by crying!]. Not expressing the views is the strength of an unintillegent person!

[People think that the person talks less, which is considered as a good habit] And telling lies is the strength of a thief. Thieves get away with their crimes by their art of telling the untruth.

Let's identify our strengths!!
