Verse 5.20.21

पुलिन्दीस्तनपीठेषु निलीनं येन कानने ।
षट्पदेनेव पद्मेषु सोऽयं त्वमनुजो मम ॥ २१ ॥

pulindīstanapīṭheṣu nilīnaṃ yena kānane |
ṣaṭpadeneva padmeṣu so'yaṃ tvamanujo mama || 21 ||

Thou wast once the youngling of a Pulinda (a hill tribe woman), and didst dwell on her dugs like the honey-sucking bee on the pericarp of a lotus. The same art thou now my younger brother.
