athasmin bhagavan vainyah
prajanam vrttidah pita
nivasan kalpayam cakre
tatra tatra yatharhatah
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
To all the citizens of the state, King Prthu was as good as a father. Thus he was visibly engaged in giving them proper subsistence and proper employment for subsistence. After leveling the surface of the globe, he earmarked different places for residential quarters, inasmuch as they were desirable.
