balance of convenience

वरं न राज्यं न कुराज राज्यं
वरं न मित्रं न कुमित्रमित्रं।
वरं न शिष्यो न कुशिष्यशिष्यो
वरं न दारा न कुदारदार॥
चाणक्यनीतिः
varaṁ na rājyaṁ na kurāja rājyaṁ
varaṁ na mitraṁ na kumitramitraṁ|
varaṁ na śiṣyo na kuśiṣyaśiṣyo
varaṁ na dārā na kudāradāra ||
cānakyanītiḥ
വരം ന രാജ്യം ന കുരാജ രാജ്യം
വരം ന മിത്രം ന കുമിത്രമിത്രം
വരം ന ശിഷ്യോ ന കുശിഷ്യ ശിഷ്യോ
വരം ന ദാരാ ന കുദാരദാരാ
It would be better for one to wander as a nomad than staying as a subject of a wicked king.
It is far more beneficial for one to remain friendless than having a circle of friends who would not hesitate to scheme against him or double-cross him.
 It would give more peace of mind to a scholar or teacher if he does not have any disciple than having unruly wicked disciples in plenty.
 And it would the greatest boon for any man not to have a wife  than being bound by   wedlock to a shrew

let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life  is GOVINDA alone.
