ललितान्तानि गीतानि कुवाक्यान्तं च सौहृदं।
प्रणमान्तः सतां कोपो याचनान्तम् हि गौरवं।
lalitāntāni gītāni kuvākyāntaṁ ca sauhṛdaṁ|
praṇamāntah satāṁ kopo yācanāntam hi gauravaṁ|
Songs conclude with soft notes,
intimate friendships get broken by exchange of unpleasant words,
the anger of a noble man disappears completely when he is mollified through a pranaam
and one's self respect and dignity is lost irrecoverably once he starts begging.
Unfortunate and impolite exchange of words between friends too often results in snapping of the lifelong relations in many cases.
If a really noble person is angry for some reason, his anger could be pacified if the wrongdoer admits his error and makes respectful amends for the offence.
A man, however elite his position is, if he is brought down to the position of begging, all his dignity will be thrown to winds.
And melodies conclude with soft notes…that is a happy thing.
