Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kalanduka Jātaka:Kalanduka was the servant of the Treasurer of Benares.He ran away,and with the help of a forged letter,just as did Katāhaka,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.
