 Chakravaka, BirdChakravaka is a ruddy goose, commonly called the Brahmany duck or goose. Chakravaka birds are always seen to fly in pairs during the day but are supposed to remain separate during the night. The 'Chakravaka' in the poetry of the Hindus is heir turtle-dove for constancy and conjugal affection with the singular circumstance of the pair being doomed for ever to nocturnal separation for offending one of the Hindu Munis or sages.
