    भीतर-ही-भीतर

    आँखों से संघर्ष करते

    अपने अस्तित्व को ही खो देते हैं

    और

    घृणास्पद, दुर्गन्ध, बीभत्स

    गीड़ का रूप धारण कर

    विद्रूप बन बाहर आते हैं

    वह रज-कण...।

     

    यह सब प्रभाव

    जो हम पर पड़ा है।

    समता के धनी श्रमण का है”

    अन्त में यूँ कह, सेठ

    भोजन प्रारम्भ करता, कि

    पुनः कलश की ओर से

    व्यंगात्मक भाषा का प्रयोग हुआ-

     

    “अरे सुनो!

    कोष के श्रमण बहुत बार मिले हैं

    होश के श्रमण होते विरले ही,

    और

    उस समता से क्या प्रयोजन

    जिसमें इतनी भी क्षमता नहीं है

    जो समय पर,

    भय-भीत को अभय दे सके,

    श्रय-रीत को आश्रय दे सके,

    Come out in an ugly form,

    Assuming the shape of a hateful bad-smelling,

    Horrible filth.

    Which has been produced upon us

    Is that of an ascetic, who is rich in equanimity"

    Having said thus in the end, the eminent trader

    Would have just started taking food, when,

    Again, from the side of the golden pitcher,

    The ironical wordings were used –

     

    “O listen!

    The ascetics of funds have been found frequently

    The ascetics of sense and sensibility are rarely seen, And

    What purpose is served with that equanimity

    Which doesn't possess even the competence

    That should infuse at the right time,

    A sense of fearlessness into the terror-stricken,

    That should give refuge to the shelterless ?

    What a mockery is it?
