Verse 5.37.18

अनियतवनितार्थमन्त्रयुद्धं हृतधनदारविरावितं समन्तात् ।
कलियुगसमयोद्भटोत्कटाभं तदसुरमण्डलमाकुलं बभूव ॥ १८ ॥

aniyatavanitārthamantrayuddhaṃ hṛtadhanadāravirāvitaṃ samantāt |
kaliyugasamayodbhaṭotkaṭābhaṃ tadasuramaṇḍalamākulaṃ babhūva || 18 ||

The Asura realm became a scene of horror, by lawless fighting for the wives and properties of others; and the wailings of those that were robbed of their wealth and wives, it made the scene seem as the reign of the dark Kali age, when the atrocious marauders are let loose to spread devastation all over the earth.
