[Kumaradhikrita in Natyashastra glossaries]

Kumārādhikṛta (कुमाराधिकृत) refers to “wardens of princes” and represents a classification of persons who “move about in public”, according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 34. Accordingly, “Those who are alert, careful, always active (lit. free from indolence), inured to hard work, affectionate, forbearing, disciplined, impartial, skillful, well-versed in polity and in discipline, and who are masters of reasoning positive and negative, have knowledge of all the Śāstras and are not vitiated by passion and such other things, and who are hereditary servants of the king, and are attached to him, should be made wardens of princes (kumāra-adhikṛta), because of their possessing these various qualities”.

Note: Kumārādhikṛta probably is identical with the Kumārādhyakṣa of Arthaśāstra.
