savyaṣṭhā सव्यष्ठा

Definition: Are all various forms of the word for ‘car-fighter,’ as opposed to Sārathi, ‘charioteer,’ showing that, as was natural, the fighter stood on the left of the driver. The commentators are inclined to see in the Savyaṣthā merely another ‘charioteer/ but this is quite unjustifiable, and is perhaps due to later caste prejudice against a śūdra charioteer.
