Sanskrit Quote:

रात्रिर्गमिष्यति भविष्यति सुप्रभातम्

भास्वानुदेष्यति हसिष्यति पंकजश्रीः।

इति विचारयति कोषगते द्विरेफे

हा हंत हंत नलिनीं गज उज्जहार॥

English Translation of Sanskrit Quote:

The sun will rise, lotus flower will open.
While the bee inside the lotus flower was thinking thus,
The lotus plant was uprooted by an elephant.
