संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

साक्षराः विपरीताश्चेत्

साक्षराः विपरीताश्चेत् राक्षसाः एव केवलम्।
सरसो विपरीतश्चेत् सरसत्वं न मुञ्चति॥
sākṣarāḥ viparītāścet rākṣasāḥ eva kevalam|
saraso viparītaścet sarasatvaṁ na muñcati||
If [the word] sākṣarā (literate, i.e. learned people) is inverted, it becomes rākṣasā (devil).
[But] if [the word] sarasa (good, i.e. good people) is inverted, it remains sarasa!

Therefore, one must be both  sākṣarā and sarasa.
