But is it a vision or a waking dream?




परोक्षे कार्यहन्तारं प्रत्यक्षे प्रियवादिनम्।
वर्जयेत् तादृशं मित्रं विषकुंभं पयोमुखम्॥
चाणक्यनीत्यां
parokṣe kāryahantāraṁ pratyakṣe priyavādinam|
varjayet tādṛśaṁ mitraṁ viṣakuṁbhaṁ payomukham||
cāṇakyanītyāṁ
പരോക്ഷേ കാര്യഹന്താരം പ്രത്യക്ഷേ പ്രിയവാദിനം 
വര്‍ജയേത് താദൃശം മിത്രം വിഷകുംഭം പയോമുഖം 
ചാണക്യനീതി


One should abandon a (so called) friend who is a specialist in sabotaging your plans and progress behind his back, but who always revels in telling only words loaded with sweetness while meeting face to face.. because such friend is like a pot filled with venom inside with milk floating on the surface..

A great advise indeed.. 
But Chanakya was a great scholar and could survive and hold on to his own without the good offices of many friends..
But we have to ponder very seriously whether we can afford to get on with our friends list practically empty..

உள்ளொன்று வைத்து வெளியொன்று பேசுவோர் உறவு கலவாமை வேண்டும் 
the great saint of Tamil.. Ramalinga Vallalaar Prayed..

 May I be blessed not to have friendship with those who have something in their mind and speak out just the opposite.. 
If  the prayer is answered , Good days are coming really.. 

But is it a vision or a waking dream?
