Proverbs from all Marathi speaking parts of the world.
- The remedy is worse than the cure.
- English equivalent: The remedy is often worse than the disease; Burn not your house to rid it off the mouse.
- Meaning: The effect of a treatment or bodily enhancement – whether pharmaceutical or not, whether a household remedy or professional-ordained – is often worse than what it was intended to cure or alleviate.
