NOVEMBER 1 MONDAY

Rulers live off their lands

Physicians off the sick

Merchants live off their consumers

The learned off fools

Xxx

NOVEMBER 2 TUESDAY

Thieves live off the unwary

Almsman off householders

Harlots off pleasure seekers

And workers off the whole world

Xxx

NOVEMBER 3 WEDNESDAY

The king incarnates all the gods

So sing the sages old

Then treat him like gods,to him

Let nothing false be told

Xxx

NOVEMBER 4 THURSDAY

King pays for good or ill at once

The Gods, a lifetime hence

Xxx

NOVEMBER 5 FRIDAY

There is no toy,called easy joy

But man must strain, to body s pain

Xxx

NOVEMBER 6 SATURDAY

To what good purpose can a cow

That brings no calf nor milk,be lent

Or why beget a son who proves

A dunce and disobedient

Xxx

NOVEMBER 7 SUNDAY

It is better to be dead than to be poor

Xxx

NOVEMBER 8 MONDAY

One without ambition does not hold office

And fallen out of love does not care to adorn himself

And one who lacks learning displays no eloquence

And one who is blunt in speech is never a cheat

Xxx

NOVEMBER 9 TUESDAY

The hurricane innocuous passes

Over feeble,lowly bending grasses

But tears at lofty trees, the great

Their prowess greatly demonstrate

Xxx

NOVEMBER 10 WEDNESDAY

With fields ever changing rivers

With wife on flirting bent

Or in a house with serpents

No man can be content

Xxx

NOVEMBER 11 THURSDAY

Slay not a woman, Brahmin, child

An invalid or hermit mild

In case of major dereliction

Disfigurement is the infliction

Xxx

NOVEMBER 12 FRIDAY

A king though proud and pure of birth

Will see his servants flee

A court where no rewards are won

As birds a withered tree

Xxx

NOVEMBER 13 SATURDAY

No stranger may be turned aside

who seeks your door at even tide

Nay,honour him and you shall be

Transmuted into deity

Xxx

NOVEMBER 14 SUNDAY

Indulge no anger,shameless wish

To hurt, unless you can

The chickpea hopping up and down

Will crack no frying pan

Xxx

NOVEMBER 15 MONDAY

Unceasing effort brings success

Fate, fate is all let dastards wail

Smite fate and prove yourself a man

What fault if bold endeavour fail

Xxx

NOVEMBER 16 TUESDAY

The gods befriend a man who climbs

Determination s height

So Vishnu, discuss, bird sustained

The weaker in the fight

Xxx

NOVEMBER 17 WEDNESDAY

Let resolution guide the Great

However desperate his state

However grim his hostile fate

Xxx

NOVEMBER 18 THURSDAY

By resolution lifted high

With shrewd decision as ally

He grimly sees troubles fly

Xxx

NOVEMBER 19 FRIDAY

Educating minds unfit

Cannot rescue sluggish Wit

Just as house lamps wasted are

Set within a covered

Xxx

NOVEMBER 20 SATURDAY

The great are firm, though battered

Great ocean is not fouled by caring shore

Xxx

NOVEMBER 21 SUNDAY

No rouge asks reason for his wrath

Nor saint,to travel in kindness path

By nature power the sweet or sour

In sugar dwells or neem trees flower

Xxx.

NOVEMBER 22 MONDAY

A man might confide somethings to his wife

Some to his close friends, and some to his son

These deserve his trust, but not reveal

All matters to everyone in sight

Xxx

NOVEMBER 23 TUESDAY

The wise do not care to serve the king

who cannot recognise each one’s merit

Such service is wholly barren of all fruit

Like the tillage of a salt meadow

Xxx

NOVEMBER 24 WEDNESDAY

Servants and ornaments are to be placed

Each in the position right fo them

Xxx

NOVEMBER 25 THURSDAY

The wiseman puts one foot forward

While he stands firm on the other

He will not foresake his former home

Until he finds another

xxx

NOVEMBER 26 FRIDAY

Slight kindness shown to lofty souls

A strange enlargement seeks

The moon s beam glean with white r light

On Himalayas peak

Xxx

NOVEMBER 27 SATURDAY

Does a scoundrel require provocation to fly into a great rage?

Or a saint needs kindness to make him calm?

It is the inherent nature each

To produce its own flavour distinctive.

NOVEMBER 28 SUNDAY

By no man’s smile is any man raised high

By no man s frown is any man cast down

Up or down, a man rises or falls in life

By the true worth of his actions and conduct

Xxx

NOVEMBER 29 MONDAY

The firefly seems a fire, the sky looks flat

Yet sky and fly are neither this nor that

The true seem often false, the false seem true

Appearance s deceive, so think it through

Xxx

NOVEMBER 30 TUESDAY

Where the tongue is double

You may look for trouble

–SUBHAM–
