Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)
Ullekha (उल्लेख) is another name for Ullikhita: one of the 93 alaṃkāras (“figures of speech”) mentioned by Cirañjīva Bhaṭṭācārya (fl. 17th century) in his Kāvyavilāsa and is listed as one of the 89 arthālaṃkāras (figure of speech determined by the sense, as opposed to sound). According to Cirañjīva the comprehension of the same object as different by different person is called the figure ullikhita. According to his predecessors the name of the figure is ullekha, but in Cirañjīva’s work the name has been sighted as ullikhita. The difference is only in name, but not in content.(Source): Shodhganga: The Kavyavilasa of Ciranjiva Bhattacarya (natyashastra)
