3.8 Chanakya Niti

रूपयौवनसम्पन्ना विशालकुलसम्भवाः ।
विद्याहीना न शोभन्ते निर्गन्धाः किंशुका यथा ॥३.८॥

rūpayauvanasampannā viśālakulasambhavāḥ |
vidyāhīnā na śobhante nirgandhāḥ kiṃśukā yathā ||3.8||

with beauty and youth endowed, and in a large high-status family born, yet men without education are not befitting, just like a fragrantless Kinshuka flower

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