Pardayana (पारदायन) is mentioned by Panini in Ashtadhyayi. [5]


V S Agarwal[6] mentions....[p.39]: These six names (of mountains) seem to be taken from some Bhuvanakosha list, giving in order the ranges on the western frontiers from Afghanistan to Baluchistan. Starting from below, Shalvakagiri is phonetically the name of [p.40]: Hala Range lying north-south between Sind and Baluchistan. To the west of it is the Makran chain of hills the home of the Hingula River and Hingulaja goddess, Hingula seems to be the Prakrit form of Kimsulaka. It was also called by its synonymous name, the Parada country, Pardene of classical writers, corresponding to Pardayana of Patanjali (IV.2.99). Goddess Hihgula of this place is of vermilion colour, also called Dadhiparni, because of its association with the ancient Scythian tribes of Dahae and Parnians. It was worshipped also as Nani, or Nana of antiquity.

B S Dahiya[7] writes: Pargitar correctly points out them in North West. [8] They are mentioned as Paroda Sakas, and as Palads and were very prominent in the fourth and fifth centuries AD.[9]

Parada River (पारदा नदी) finds mention in Nasik Inscription. Parada tribe probably lived on the banks of Parada river. [10]
