3.17 Chanakya Niti

किं जातैर्बहुभिः पुत्रैः शोकसन्तापकारकैः ।
वरमेकः कुलालम्बी यत्र विश्राम्यते कुलम् ॥३.१७॥

kiṃ jātairbahubhiḥ putraiḥ śokasantāpakārakaiḥ |
varamekaḥ kulālambī yatra viśrāmyate kulam ||3.17||

of what use are many sons who only cause sorrow and exasperation? better to have a single son in whom the family finds restful peace

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