Kalanduka Jātaka (No.127)

Kalanduka was the servant of the Treasurer of Bārāṇasī. He ran away, and with the help of a forged letter, just as did Kaṭāhaka (q.v.), and married the daughter of a border merchant.

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