śatakatrayam 1.48: udbhāsitākhilakhalasya (that morally depraved brazen man)

by Jahnabi Barooah

उद्भासिताखिलखलस्य विशृङ्खलस्य
प्रोद्गाढविस्मृतनिजाधमकर्मवृत्ते: ।
दैवादवाप्तविभवस्य गुणद्विषोऽस्य
नीचस्य गोचरगतै: सुखमास्यते कै: ।।४८।।
नीतिशतके

that morally depraved brazen man
festooned by pearls of wickedness,
who can’t recognize his own vile deeds
and has suddenly acquired pots of gold–
will anyone on earth beseech the prince
for even the smallest favor? ||48||
