Worth Four Crores

"(i) Not crossing the threshold
of those that disrespect you
is worth a crore indeed;

(ii) Not partaking of food
in the homes of those
that do not with full heart
invite you to do so,
is worth a crore indeed;

(iii) Expending crores even
in order to cultivate
association with those
of noble lineage
is worth a crore indeed;

(iv) Not allowing your tongue
ever to swerve from Truth,
even if you are offered
crores and crores as bribe
is worth a crore indeed;
