Delodephius is on a distinguished road

In Slovak we use bb, fazuľa and hrach for different types of bean plants. Bb and fazuľa are reserved for beans, hrach means peas. We also use mauny for green beans (zelen bb), or what Serbs call boranija. The diminutive of hrach is hrok. (In Slovak g>h, not like Macedonian or Serbian x, but like in English h, as in house or horse.)
अयं निज: परो वेति गणना लघुचेतसाम्।
उदारमनसानां तु वसुधैव कुटुंबकम्॥
This is mine or (somebody) elses (is the way) narrow minded people count.
But for broad minded people, (whole) earth is (like their) family.
