CHAPTER ONE

1 I bow my head to almighty Vishnu, the lord of all worlds, before venturing to put forward the essence of knowledge on politics, extracted from several books and scriptures, for the general benefit of society. 2 The careful study of politics teaches one to discern what is wrong and what is right. And imparts wisdom to choose the path that leads to success and good result 3 For the general public I reveal this knowledge to help everyone know when to do what, to become know all. 4 A wise one should not impart knowledge to a brainless idiot. or associate oneself with a woman of low character or keep company of a complainer beset with miseries. Because they only cause frustration and pain. 5`Death is the fate of person who lives in a place which houses a scheming woman, or a deceitful friend, or disrespectful servant or a poisonous Snake. 6 Protect the money you save for hard time. Protect your woman with the money. Protect yourself with the money and the woman. 7 Save and guard your money for rainy days, if you are not careful, the money has a tendency to get dissipated easily.Bad times come unheralded. 8 Never make a country your home that denies you respect, that offers no means of livelihood, that does not give you a family and Friends and a country that has no education system. 9 Do not live a place for a single day where there are rich people , no king, no scholar, no river and no physician. 10 Do not live in a society which is devoid of, employment opportunities, fear, shame cleverness and spirit of sacrifice. 11 Test the fidelity of the people around the following testing times, a servant sent to fulfill a task, kith and kin in hard times, a friend in hour of dire need, and wife when is money is gone. 12 A true brother or friend is he who stands by you in illness, in hard times, in famine, in facing enemies, in royal court, and in funeral ground. 13 Do not run after what is uncertain, and the process you might loose what was certain. 14 A wise person should seek the hand of a girl from a good family even if ugly she be in look at. Never marry a girl from the lower family than yours, however, beauteous she may be. 15 Do not trust clawed beasts, long and sharp horned animals, persons in arms, woman and royalty. 16 Accepting nectar from poison, gold from unclean source, learning from a person of a lower class and a good woman from a family of bad repute is not wrong. 17 Women have twice the food , four times of shame, six time of courage and eight times of sex hunger.

CHAPTER TWO

1 Telling lies, impatience, deceit, foolishness, greed, impurity, and cruelty - these are the basic traits of woman. 2 If one has a regular rich food available, and appetite to eat and a good constitution to digest it, a beautiful woman to make love with, no shortage of money, and a charitable disposition, then it is like the boon earned after a long meditation. 3 He who has a obedient son, a devoted wife, and is contented with money he has got, is indeed a heavenly life. 4 True sons are those who are dutiful to their father, a true father is one who devoted brings up his children, a true friend is one who is trust worthy and a true women is one who begets peace and happiness to her family 5 A friend who talks all sugars and honey to you but puts finner in your works behind your back is like a piture full of poison topped with cream 6 Do not trust your bad or even good friend with your vital secrets. When your relation sour they shall use the secrets as leverage over you. 7 *Keep your all plans and your ultimate objectives to yourself Guard it as your life's treasure. 8 Certainly the stupidity is woe, the youthful age invites woes but living in other,s house as a poor relation is the biggest woe. 9 Every...
