Sarika is a small bird, also known as Maina. It is represented as a female bird while the parrot is described as a male bird. These two birds are mentioned in Hindu tales. Sarika and parrot are said to be the faculty of human speech, they are constantly introduced, the one inveighing against the faults of the male sex, and the other exposing the defects of the female. They are thus represented in the fourth section of that entertaining collection, the Baital Pachisi. In the Meghaduta kavya, Sarika is mentioned as the favourite bird of the wife of the Yaksha.
