Proverb: Like water on a keladi leaf

Keladi is taro. Its leaves are waxy, and water runs off very quickly.

Water is like someone’s thought. Sometimes the keladi leaf has a concave depression on top that fills with rain water. When the wind blows, this water is unsteady. It wobbles. The word is ‘goyah’. This is used when someone’s thought is unsteady; he does not think in a straight line.
