Man or beast does not always live in youth. All living things get old after a while. Although many people adopt many tips to avoid aging, but after a while aging is certain.
Acharya Chanakya, a great scholar of Niti Shastra, has also described this matter in his book Chanakya Niti. He explains, through a verse, the reason why humans and horses age so quickly. So let’s find out in detail about it.
Chanakya believes that for men, excessive walking, tying a horse and wearing clothes are the cause of old age. That means all work should be done within limits. Walking more than necessary is tiring and the person begins to feel old.
In the same way, a horse that is tied up gets old. That means work should be taken from the horse. Constant sun drying also spoils clothes quickly. Chanakya says that even inanimate things get aged from time to time.
