Śukadeva had got patronage of King Balavanta Siṃha, at whose instance he composed this text. Śukadeva mentions his patron Balavanta with the prefix as nṛpato śārdūla in the colophon of sixth chapter of the text. He also introduces himself as śrīvidvat-upādhyāyapaṇḍitaśukadeva.

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.
