dhig aprajam striyam papam
dasim iva tiraskrtam
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
A wife who has no sons is neglected at home by her husband and dishonored by her co-wives exactly like a maidservant. Certainly such a woman is condemned in every respect because of her sinful life.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
As stated by Canakya Pandita:
mata yasya grhe nasti
aranyam tena gantavyam
yatharanyam tatha grham
“A person who has no mother at home and whose wife does not speak sweetly should go to the forest. For such a person, living at home and living in the forest are equal.” Similarly, for a woman who has no son, who is not cared for by her husband and whose co-wives neglect her, treating her like a maidservant, to go to the forest is better than to remain at home.
