Age is no yardstick of excellence

  • सिह्मः शिशुरपि निपतति
    मलमलिनकपोलभित्तिषु गजेषु।
    प्रकृतिरियं सत्त्ववतां
    न खलु वयस्तेजसो हेतुः॥
  • sihmaḥ śiśurapi nipatati
    malamalinakapolabhittiṣu gajeṣu|
    prakṛtiriyaṁ sattvavatāṁ
    na khalu vayastejaso hetuḥ||
  • A young lion cub too pounces upon the juicy, ichor-laced temples of an elephant. Surely, age is no yardstick of excellence.
