एक एव खगो मानी चिरंजीवतु चातकम् |
म्रियते वा पिपासार्ताे याचते वा पुरंदरम् ||
There is only one bird (Khag) who has very high self esteem and self respect, Let that Chataka (that bird's name) live long life (Chiranjeev). Chataka would prefer to die because of thirst but will ask for water only from God Indra (Purandar). Means, he drinks only rain water. He will never drink water from the pond or stored water. Such high self respect and self esteem the bird has.
In our context we can take it this way, if you really need anything then instead of asking to others ask that greatest almighty who is the supreme self.
