The Chedi Mahameghavahana king Kharavela of Kalinga,
who Claimed Aira (Arya) descent is known to have besieged Asikanagara situated on the bank of the river
Kanhavena (Skt. Krishnavena, i.e modern Krishna) in defiance of thé contemporary Sätavahana king
Satakarni. The title Maharaja was popular among the Chedi Mahameghavahana but not among the Sattavāhanas
Hence it is conjectured that king Manasada may be a successor of Kharavela, though the.exact relation between the two cannot be determined
From the facsimile in Ep.Ind XXXII facing page 82
The complete name may have been something like Reva or Deva
English Translation another Inscripion

Success Obeisance to the Lord. One mandapa for the Lord Bhutagrahaka has been completed by (Deva) who is the female torch bearer of the illustrious maharaja Noble
Manasada the son of Hariti the descendant of Galva.
Kindly note
1. Bhutagahka may be class of domestic spirits like Bhutagrihya
2. some scholars are of the opinion that Aira stands for Aila while other trace it to Sanskrit word Arya, which is used by Cheri Mahameghavahana of Kalinga
3 The ending sada in the name Sivamaka Sada in an
Amaravati inscription is generally taken to stand for Satakami or Satavahana.
