Sora (सोर) refers to a type of fish identified with Galeocerdo tigrinus N.H., as mentioned in the 12th-century Mānasollāsa or Abhilaṣitārthachintāmaṇi, an ancient Sanskrit text describing thirty-five kinds of marine and fresh water fishes.—Someshvardeva described Sora as a marine, scaleless, and obviously a large fish. No meaning can be traced in Sanskrit. In Telugu, sora is used for any shark. Sora is the first name listed by Someshvardeva and was clubbed with other sharks. It must be an impressively large fish commonly seen in Indian seas. Hora (1951) believed that the name sora was used in plural sense for several sharks. We suggest that the name sora could have been used for the largest shark, Galeocerdo tigrinus N.H., found in both west and east coast waters.
