4. Ūḍhaḥ: The word can be used in all the three genders. It refers to the person who is unmarried (particularly in the smṛtis). It is derived as “Udyate sma” and with the kta affix. (Rama was seen married and hence, lakṣmaṇa was approached by śūrpanakhā) – Bhaṭṭi Kāvya, iv. 15. The expression “Bhāryoḍha” refers to “ooḍhabhāryaḥ”, one who is married. Mallinātha notes that it has been Paranipāta on the force of “vāhitāgnyādiṣu”
