cuckoo vs donkey

वाङ्ग्माधुर्यात् सर्वलोकप्रियत्वं
वाक्पारुष्यात् सर्वलोकोऽप्रियत्वं।
को वा लोके कोकिलस्योपकारः
को वा लोके गर्द्दभस्यापकरः॥
सुभषितशतकत्रयं॥। प्रस्तुतिः   आर्षविद्यामन्दिरं
vāṅgmādhuryāt sarvalokapriyatvaṁ
vākpāruṣyāt  sarvaloko'priyatvaṁ|
ko vā loke kokilasyopakāraḥ
ko vā loke garddabhasyāpakaraḥ||
subhaṣitaśatakatrayaṁ||| prastutiḥ   ārṣavidyāmandiraṁ

വാങ്ങ്മാധുര്യാത് സര്‍വ്വലോകപ്രിയത്വം
വാക്ക്‌ പാരുഷ്യാത് സര്‍വലോക അപ്രിയത്വം
കോ വാ ലോകേ കോകിലസ്യ ഉപകാര:
കോ വാ ലോകേ ഗര്ദ്ദഭസയ അപകാര:
സുഭാഷിത ശതകത്രയം  ഒരു ആര്ഷവിദ്യാലയ പ്രസിദ്ധീകരണം

Everyone adores a person who always utters sweet words. A person with harsh words is abhored.  The sweetness or harshness need not be any special virtue. It is just in human nature to listen to sweet words, even when they are not worth a penny.  Harsh utternace which may be of great value go unheeded.  Apart from the sweet blabber what is the use for the cuckoo in this world.  Though it is possess of a very harsh voice, the donkey have many other good uses.

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