The feminine is not changed into Masculine, when it is formed by such a Taddhita affix, which causes the Vṛiddhi of the first syllable, with the exception however of the Taddhitas meaning 'colored therewith', and 'made there of'. Source: Aṣṭādhyāyī 2.0

[A feminine-denoting nominal stem 34 ending in 1.1.72] a taddhitá (4.1.76ff.) [affix 3.1.1] which operates a vŕddhi replacement (of the initial syllable of that stem 7.2.117-118), excluding those signifying color (°-rak-tá-° 4.2.1) or transformation (°-vi-kār-é 4.3.134) [is not 37 treated like the corresponding masculine 34 before 1.1.66 the final member 1].

The form of a nominal which denotes feminine, shares identical bases with a corresponding masculine and ends in a taddhita affix conditioning vṛddhi, is not treated as that of its masculine, provided this taddhita affix was introduced with the signification of something other than rakta ‘colored by means of … (4.2.1 tena raktaṃ rāgāt)’ and vikāra ‘a modification of… (4.3.134 tasyavikāraḥ)’ Source: Courtesy of Dr. Rama Nath Sharma ©
