Dauhadika (दौहदिक) refers to 1) a “gardener”, or 2) (from dohada) a “fertiliser”, and is mentioned in the Naiṣadha-carita 6.61 (cf. 21.153). In verse 1.82, dohadadhūpin means “fertilised with smoke”. See also Nārāyaṇa under 17.220. Nārāyaṇa derives dauhadika thus—“vṛkṣādidohade niyukto dauhadikaḥ ‘tatra niyuktaḥ’ iti ṭhak”. In the sentence “dauhadikopanītā...madhūkamālā” 6.61 he construes the word also as “dauhadikā dhātrī”, but this meaning is not appropriate. Malli alone reads “dohalikopanītā” and explains dohalikā as “nurse”, but his reading is corrupt and not supported by the other commentaries. Narahari explains dauhadika as “mālākāra”. Ms. C of the commentary of Cāṇḍūpāṇḍita has “dohadikayā dāṭikāpālikayā”, but this is against the reading of A which reads dauhadika.
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’.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family. Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
