हितोपदेश - सुहृद्भेद - दुर्जन विद्या

दूरादुच्छ्रितपाणिराद्रनयनः प्रोच्छासितार्धासनो
    गाढालिंगनतत्परः प्रियकथाप्रश्नेषु दत्तादरः।
अंतर्गूढविषो बहिर्मधुमयश्चातीव मायापटुः
    को नामायमपूर्वनाटकविधिर्यः शिक्षितो दुर्जनैः ॥

- हितोपदेश, सुहृद्भेद

They raise both their hands from far off to welcome you. Their eyes are moist with tears when they see you. They happily give half their seat for you to sit. They are restless until they hug you tight. They show a lot of interest by esquiring about wellness of mutual friends. Inside they hide poison while their exterior is too sweet like honey. Such are the acts of villains. Wonder what is that stream of acting called which these rogues have so well mastered?
