99-mEya amEya-jaladhi teeradi nintu veeksisikkelagaLali...

Translation:    If one stands on the sea shore and watches either side; he sees one side (sea) moving, the other (land) stands still. One side is plain and other side has variety. Just like the such un-likes meet, this world is a amalgamation of things that we can see (and measure) and things that are beyond measure. Such blending creates this tasteful world. – Mankutimma
