“पुराणमित्येव न साधु सर्वं न चापि काव्यं नवमित्यवद्यम्।
सन्तः परीक्ष्यान्यतरद्भजन्ते मूढः परप्रत्ययनेयबुद्धिः॥”

There is a generalized and vague opinion, particularly in circulation among the conservative populace, that ‘old is gold’ and that all new-fangled things are anathema. The heritage of our ancient wisdom in Samskritham disabuses us of this prejuidice. The above Subhashitham can be translated as under:

“Everything is not good simply because it is old; nor a poem should be condemned simply because it is new; the wise resort to the one or the other after putting it to the litmus test; (only) a fool has his mind led by the judgement of another.
