Dear Indologists,

My 'grandfather' in Orissa once quoted to me a small verse of which I  
remember only one half of an uneven paada plus the final paada:

... bakadhyaayii ... vidyaarthipa;

Reading Manu 7.106 reminds me of it. I tried googling to fill in the  
blanks, but to no avail. Can anyone help me restore my poor memory?

Best wishes,
