Shanka Dinda Bidrene Theertha

Literal meaning - "Its considered holy water only if it falls from the conch".

According to the hindu religion, water poured from a conch on to God's idol is considered holy water and nothing else comes close to it. Hence this saying is used on ocassions when people need a mouthful from the right authority to make them realize or do something. Used to emphasize the fact that right authority always has its effect.

It is not the right authority.
Sometimes people don't realize the truth if others are trying convey the same thing(what authority would be saying).

After all authority(intelligent) can not always be right!

You need to accept the fact rather arguing or ignoring if it is not the authorized person.
