evaṁ nirākṛto devo
totrāhata iva dvipaḥ
evam—thus; nirākṛtaḥ—being defeated; devaḥ—King Indra; vairiṇā—by his enemy; tathya-vādinā—who was competent to speak the truth; na—not; amṛṣyat—lamented; tat—of him (Bali); adhikṣepam—the chastisement; totra—by the scepter or rod; āhataḥ—being beaten; iva—just like; dvipaḥ—an elephant.
Since Mahārāja Bali’s rebukes were truthful, King Indra did not at all become sorry, just as an elephant beaten by its driver’s rod does not become agitated.
