CONCLUDING REMARKS

 

Ingenuity in business. 

 

Quick comprehension. 

 

Quick application of remedies, _i.e._, quick and ready resources. 

 

And this part ends with a verse:-- 

 

The man who is ingenious and wise, who is accompanied by a friend, and 

who knows the intentions of others, as also the proper time and place 

for doing everything, can gain over, very easily, even a woman who is 

very hard to be obtained. 

 

FOOTNOTES: 

 

[Footnote 31: This term does not apply to a widow, but to a woman who 

had probably left her husband, and is living with some other person as a 

married woman, maritalement, as they say in France.] 

 

[Footnote 32: Any woman fit to be enjoyed without sin. The object of the 

enjoyment of women is twofold, viz., pleasure and progeny. Any woman who 

can be enjoyed without sin for the purpose of accomplishing either the 

one or the other of these two objects is a Nayika. The fourth kind of 

Nayika which Vatsya admits further on is neither enjoyed for pleasure or 

for progeny, but merely for accomplishing some special purpose in hand. 

The word Nayika is retained as a technical term throughout.]
