kapota कपोत

Definition: Is the name of a bird, probably the ‘ pigeon ’ (its sense in the later language), occurring from the Rigveda onwards. It is associated in some passages with the owl (Ulūka) as a messenger of Nirrti (‘dissolution,’ ‘misfortune’). This aspect of the pigeon as a bird of evil omen is probably based on an ancient belief which is also found beyond the confines of India.
