Chanakya Neeti 20
Brahmin who ruins other people’s works, is arrogant, soft speaking but cruel, selfish, jealous, envious is called a feline.
Unlike many Brahmins of his age, that is medieval era he was not ready to certify every Brahmin as God-sent, even though he was one! Cats are often called treacherous, selfish and wicked by Indians, which they are, it is their natural instinct but they lack the virtues or utilities of other household pets, they do kill mice and cockroaches but that too depends on their mood, they don’t mind killing your pet birds too! So, yeah, as Brahmin of that age lived upon the charity/offerings of their clients, I guess Chanakya was harsh but yet again right!

Chanakya was the mentor, guide and prime minister of Emperor Chandragupta Maurya. His words were very wise when it came to explaining human nature and ways of actual world.
As I am too engrossed with my twins (agnishatdalezine.wordpress.com and agnijaat.wordpress.com- check them out guys, my twin Ezines Agnishatdal and Agnijaat) I will use him as my own and your teacher for at least a couple of months. Hope you will benefit too.
