Prajādā (प्रजादा) is another name for Putradā, an unidentified medicinal plant, according to verse 4.159-160 of the 13th-century Raj Nighantu or Rājanighaṇṭu. The fourth chapter (śatāhvādi-varga) of this book enumerates eighty varieties of small plants (pṛthu-kṣupa). Together with the names Prajādā and Putradā, there are a total of seven Sanskrit synonyms identified for this plant. Note: Putradā is possibly identified with (i) Iṅgudī or Balanites aegyptiaca Linn., (ii) Mandragora officinarum Linn., or (iii) Fāsarā, corresponding to Śivaliṅgī (Bryonia laciniosa Linn.).

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). 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.
