<p style='text-align: justify;'>A manuscript of the <i>Ghaṭakarparaṭīka</i>, an unpublished commentary on the <i>Ghaṭakarpara</i>, a <i>dūtakāvya</i> or messenger poem. Allegedly, the poet is also known by the name Ghaṭakarpara, although n some traditional accounts and on the paper sleeve used as manuscript cover the poem is attributed to Kālidāsa. The poet famously employs the <i>yamaka</i> poetic device, 'paronomasia' or better 'cadence' (see Gerow 1977: 223-238), consistently in every stanza of the poem. The manuscript contains both the commentary and the poem, and the layout is in <i>tripāṭha</i> form. The commentary is attributed to Tārācandra (called Tārānātha on the paper sleeve). However, the text itself names him as being responsible for a revision of the commentary, and not necessarily as its author (see the explicit of the commentary under Excerpts; cf. also J. B. Chaudhuri 1953: 40); another possible interpretation is that the text in this manuscript is a revision, done by the author himself, of a previous version. </p>
