Dainya (दैन्य, “depression”).—One of the thirty-three ‘transitory states’ (vyabhicāribhāva), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 7. These ‘transitory states’ accompany the ‘permanent state’ in co-operation. The term is used throughout nāṭyaśāstra literature. (Also see the Daśarūpa 4.8-9)Source: archive.org: Natya Shastra
Dainya (दैन्य, “depression”) is caused by determinants (vibhāva) such as poverty, mental agony and the like. It is to be represented on the stage by consequents (anubhāva) such as want of self-command, dullness of the body, absent-mindedness, giving up of cleansing [the body] and the like.
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (śāstra) of performing arts, (nāṭya, e.g., theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects. It also teaches the rules for composing dramatic plays (nataka) and poetic works (kavya).

Dainya (दैन्य) refers to one of the different Bhāvas employed in the Bhīṣmacarita (Bhishma Charitra) which is a mahākāvya (‘epic poem’) written by Hari Narayan Dikshit.— The example of dainya-bhāva is XVI.16.—Here we can easily observe that how Devavrata Bhīṣma feels regression in the mind for not helping (though being capable) lady Draupadī at the time of need. She was insulted by Duryodhana and Duḥśāsana in the royal court and he did not stop them from doing so. Thus the sense of dainya can be seen in Devavrta Bhīṣma.
Kavya (काव्य, kavya) refers to Sanskrit poetry, a popular ancient Indian tradition of literature. There have been many Sanskrit poets over the ages, hailing from ancient India and beyond. This topic includes mahakavya, or ‘epic poetry’ and natya, or ‘dramatic poetry’.
