Haavu Sayolla Kolu Muriyalla

ಹಾವು ಸಾಯೋಲ್ಲ ಕೋಲು ಮುರಿಯೋಲ್ಲ

Literal meaning : " Neither the Snake dies nor the stick breaks"

This is used to indicate when there is an impasse on any issue and it doesn't get solved when the same actions/strategy is employed repeatedly without any progress. One is expected to kill the snake with the stick. But if you keep on beating ineffectively without killing the snake its waste of time/effort.

its not "haavu sayolla kolu muriyalla", but it is "haavu sayabeku
kolu muriya baaradu", implying inspite of you having done a work, you should'nt loose anything.
