Madotkaṭa (मदोत्कट) is the name of a lion (siṃha), according to the Kathāsaritsāgara, chapter 59. Accordingly, “... there lived once in a certain forest a lion, named Madotkaṭa, and he had three followers, a panther, a crow and a jackal. That lion once saw a camel, that had escaped from a caravan, entering his wood, a creature he was not familiar with before, of ridiculous appearance”.
The story of Madotkaṭa was narrated by Sañjīvaka to Damanaka in order to demonstrate that “a mean master, with mean retainers, though he be won over by faithful service, becomes estranged”.
The Kathāsaritsāgara (‘ocean of streams of story’), mentioning Madotkaṭa, is a famous Sanskrit epic story revolving around prince Naravāhanadatta and his quest to become the emperor of the vidyādharas (celestial beings). The work is said to have been an adaptation of Guṇāḍhya’s Bṛhatkathā consisting of 100,000 verses, which in turn is part of a larger work containing 700,000 verses.
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’.
