131-Pulisinghaduchwaasa hasu hulle hayadusiru....

 Translation:    "This is the same world that existed eons ago. We still have the earth on which Lord Rama walked in Treta yuga. We still have the same air that Bheema breathed in Dwapara yuga. The river Ganga that Bhagiratha brought from heaven to earth is still flowing. The ocean that gave birth to the Moon (during the divine churning) is still around. How is that we are 'new'?" – Mankutimma
