रक्तमांसास्थिदिग्धानि करभस्य यथा वने ।
तथैवाङ्गानि कामिन्यास्तां प्रत्यपि हि को ग्रहः ॥ ७ ॥

raktamāṃsāsthidigdhāni karabhasya yathā vane |
tathaivāṅgāni kāminyāstāṃ pratyapi hi ko grahaḥ || 7 ||

There is no difference between a woman and a young elephant that lives in the jungle, both of them being made of blood, flesh and bones. Then why hunt after her.
