The Dattakatilaka a newly discovered Smrti work written by the illustrious polymath Bhatta Bhavadeva is a text book on the question of the hereditary property of the adopted sons. Though written between the last quarter of the 11 century and the first quarter of the next one his Smrti books were (and are still) followed by the Bengali Hindus for their socio religious life.

Of the various kinds of sons only the natural (Aurasa) and adopted son (Dattaka) are said to be in currency in the Kaliyuga while the other types of sons are prohibited.
