Three Things Which Reveal One’s Ignorance!

A person who,

Tries to expose and reveal his family born
Trait and pride in the assembly of learned men,

Tries to expose in the learned audience
About his exemplary educational qualifications,

Speaks about the success how he conquered the war
By killing the enemies and made the king more happier

Should not self boast himself by doing the above said
Three things which reveal his ignorance, indeed!
