Nāṭyaśāstra (theatrics and dramaturgy)
Asambādhā (असम्बाधा) refers to a type of syllabic metre (vṛtta), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 16. In this metre, the first five and the last three syllables of a foot (pāda) are heavy (guru), while the rest of the syllables are light (laghu).
Asambādhā falls in the Śakkarī class of chandas (rhythm-type), which implies that verses constructed with this metre have four pādas (‘foot’ or ‘quarter-verse’) containing fourteen syllables each.Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
