1.11 Chanakya Niti

जानीयात्प्रेषणे भृत्यान्बान्धवान् व्यसनागमे ।
मित्रं चापत्तिकालेषु भार्यां च विभवक्षये ॥१.११॥

jānīyātpreṣṇe bhṛtyānbāndhavān vyasanāgame |
mitraṃ cāpattikāleśu bhāryāṃ ca vibhavakśaye ||1.11||

know the true nature of servants by putting them at work, of a relative when one is suffering a calamity, of a friend when one is facing an adversity, and of a wife when one’s wealth is lost

Excerpt from the book “Old Chanakya Strategy: Aphorisms” by Rajen Jani
