Sanskrit Word of the Week (WoW)

Karagraahin. (kah-reh-graa-hin): Tax collector(s).


'... it's not the vassals' apathy or incompetence alone that has these people clamouring here; but also the Kingdom's taxation policies. Over the many years the karagraahin, with their unfettered powers, have reduced the nation to this! How can the people grow crops and pay taxes if we won't even leave them with enough grain to use as seed?'

(The Cowherd Prince, Ch. 4)
