3.9 Chanakya Niti

कोकिलानां स्वरो रूपं स्त्रीणां रूपं पतिव्रतम् ।
विद्या रूपं कुरूपाणां क्षमा रूपं तपस्विनाम् ॥३.९॥

kokilānāṃ svaro rūpaṃ strīṇāṃ rūpaṃ pativratam |
vidyā rūpaṃ kurūpāṇāṃ kṣamā rūpaṃ tapasvinām ||3.9||

a cuckoo’s musical notes, is its beauty; a woman’s beauty is in her remaining faithful to her husband; knowledge is the beauty of an ugly person; forgiveness is the beauty of a saint

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