Caṭ.—cf. alīkaṃ caṭāpitam (LP), ‘circulated a false rumour’. Cf. caṭanti (LP); ‘to accumulate’; also cf. Gujarātī cad8hśe. Note: caṭ is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
