General definition (in Hinduism)Source: archive.org: Vedic index of Names and Subjects
Sṛṇī (सृणी) is found certainly in one, and probably also in two other passages of the Rigveda. The sense appears to be ‘sickle’. In one other passage Sṛṇya is coupled with jetā: the sense is doubtful, Roth conjecturing cetā, and Oldenberg pointing out that chettā is also possible. Hopkins thinks that a ‘hook’ is here meant.

Śrī-ni.—(IE 8-1), abbreviation of Śrīhasta-nirīkṣita, ‘examined by the king’. See ni and Śrī-hasta, etc. Note: śrī-ni is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
