inborn propensities

मधुघटशतसिक्ते स्वादुता नास्ति निम्बे
घृतशतपलहोमैः शीतळत्वं न वह्नेः।
हलशतपरिकृष्टेऽप्यूषरे नास्ति सस्यं
त्यजति न च कुभावं दुर्ज्जनः सेवितोऽपि॥४४॥
चाणकय्राजनीतिशस्त्रे अध्यायः ३
madhukhaṭaśatasikte svādutā nāsti nimbe
ghṛtaśatapalahomaiḥ śītaḻatvaṁ na vahneḥ|
halaśataparikṛṣṭe'pyūṣare nāsti sasyaṁ
tyajati na ca kubhāvaṁ durjjanaḥ sevito'pi||44||
cāṇakayrājanītiśastre adhyāyaḥ 3

The wise words of Chankya the ace statesman.  "Even if the neem tree is fed with hundreds of pots of honey, its leaves and fruits will not abandon their natural bitter taste. Even if we try to propitiate the fire with  tons of ghee, it will never become cool.  Even if we till the saline land with thousands of ploughs, no plant will grow in it.  The people who are evil by nature, even if we serve them faithfully, will never change their character and disposition."

We encounter such situation in real life most of the times.   Some people are born with a natural dislike  for all those who work with them and they never fail in being tyrannical.  It is the misfortune of the persons who are forced to be in their service by the quirk of fate.  The tyrant cannot be made happy in anyway. He rsembles the proverbial donkey.. If one  goes in front of him, he will attack you with his forehead, and if one goes behind him he will be kicked hard

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