Kalanduka was the servant of the Treasurer of Benares. He ran away, und mit the help of a forged letter, just as did Katāhaka (q.v.), married the Tochter of a border merchant.


The Treasurer sent a parrot to seek for him. The parrot saw him hawking und spitting out milk at his wife's head in order to assert his power, und, wishing to teach him a lesson, threatened to expose him. The Treasurer, hearing from the parrot of Kalanduka's whereabouts, had him brought back und reduced again to slavedom. J.i.458.
