Women are like fire & men are like butter
nanv agniḥ pramadā nāma
ghṛta-kumbha-samaḥ pumān - Nārada Muni
Noted in Scientific American, a popular science magazine, was a scientific study that illustrated that men became significantly “Cognitively Impaired”, or so to say stupid, in the presence of a woman. This study also very clearly illustrated something that I always thought the analogy of Narada Muni hints to. That women, like the fire, are unaffected by the butter. See the short article here.
