2.17 Chanakya Niti

निर्धनं पुरुषं वेश्या प्रजा भग्नं नृपं त्यजेत् ।
खगा वीतफलं वृक्षं भुक्त्वा चाभ्यागतो गृहम् ॥२.१७॥

nirdhanaṃ puruṣaṃ veśyā prajā bhagnaṃ nṛpaṃ tyajet |
khagā vītaphalaṃ vṛkṣaṃ bhuktvā cābhyāgato gṛham ||2.17||

a poor man is left by a prostitute; the subjects leave a weak king; a bird leaves a fruitless tree; after meals, the guests leave the house

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