hide but spread your antennae

नास्य गुह्यं परे विद्युः छिद्रम् विद्यात् परस्य च।

An efficient administrator  should ensure that his adversaries and enemies do not make any inroads into his confidential matters.  At the same time he should be adroit enough to manage leakage and defeat of the machinations of his adversaries.  That way he is advised to remain like a tortoise who is always alert but remains unobtrusive drawing all his organs into his own tough shell.  The advise of the great political guru is significant ever and ever and today we see this caution manifesting in the tough battle of wits between administrators on the one side and right to information, wikileaks etc., on the other side.

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