Sir,

Very nice one....

I feel "HANSA" would probably represent SWAN and not Geese.

Thanks & Regards

If a boy is not trained well in life and not given education at the proper age,  his mother in his enemy and his father is the sworn destroyer.  For an uneducated man suffers in this world and especially where it counts, cannot  shine ...he will be like an ugly crane in the midst of swans
(friends,  I have so many other great texts to cover but I am not able to move away from  chanakya neethi because it is so educative and terse....gita, vidhuraneethi, sanalsujatheeyam, anusasana parva of bharatha, the great mahakavyas, upanishats, vedas, are all  waiting for me...but life is so short.)
