Dear listmembers,
I am searching for the meaning of sinhalese /käḍapat/,
which means something like a message for a king.
Paranavitana explains this word as sk /kāṣṭha-patra/, a message written 
on wood.
This was in use in Central-Asia but not in Sri Lanka.
I suggest a Prakrit-word, since I remember pk kaḍa = bamboo etc.

Anyone came across a similar word in Prakrit describing a message?
And messages written on bamboo?
