Dear Professor Aklujkar,

Thank you for the information. But modern Berar now comes under Bihar province. So, can we say that Vopadeva hails from the eastern part of India?

Best regards,

G.B. Palsule, in the introduction (p. xxix) to his (excellent critical) edition of Kavi-kalpa-druma, places Vopadeva “at Veda-pada, a small town in the Varadā-tata, i.e. modern Berar.” This is based on the same scholar’s discussion in ABORI, 1953,
