2.12 Chanakya Niti

लालनाद्बहवो दोषास्ताडने बहवो गुणाः ।
तस्मात्पुत्रं च शिष्यं च ताडयेन्न तु लालयेत् ॥२.१२॥

lālanādbahavo doṣāstāḍane bahavo guṇāḥ |
tasmātputraṃ ca śiṣyaṃ ca tāḍayenna tu lālayet ||2.12||

over-indulgence has many faults, punishment has many virtues; therefore, a son and a pupil should be punished and not over-indulged

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