‘Gold’-en words-thought for the day

Aham SuvarNa na mE dukhamagnidahE na taDanE

EtattumE mahadukham gujjaya tolayanti mAma

I'm gold! It doesn't pain when I'm tested (melted) in fire or when being beaten in wires or moulded in various shapes while making jewellery but what hurts most,is when people weigh me with 'Gunja' -Abrus precatorius.

Abrus precatorius are the seeds which were used to compare with gold in order to determine the weight of gold.
