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