Vedas on Substandard products, hoarders, adulteration,

black-marketers

Sarmaa सरमा:
सरमा
- Taking guidance from Sayan MW (Monier Williams) calls
Sarma a four eyed dog of Indra.
िवत् जन सरमा की ुपि ,या या गितमान पदाथ िमनाित सा
सरमा से बताते ह.
Sarma is One who takes measure of a variable item. Vaidic
Sarma is thus a watch dog of society,and is said to have four
eyes. Inspectors enforcing quality controls, media and whistle
blowers are the class of men that can be called vaidic Sarma.

Panis in Vedas
Panis represent a class of people who receive praise in Vedas
for their ability to collect and store any surplus commodity
produced in the society.
Panis in Vedas also come in for lot of criticism, when motivated
by greed they indulge in unethical practices to create artificial
shortages, flood the markets with adulterated commodities,
and get rich at the expense of society.

Rig Ved 10.108 sookt takes the form of a dialogue between


such a supplier/ manufacturer the पिण and a quality watch
dogs- having four eyes सरमा - the checking inspector.

O Sarma, with us, you are at the threshold of prosperity. We
can provide you with all the riches that you may like. Who
parts with his riches without any fight? We are also very
powerful with our resources and strength.

O Pani- Your suggestions are not appreciated by upright
professionals. Your conduct is evil. Save yourself from punitive

your routes. And if you do not surrender, you will find yourself
in great trouble.

you will no longer be able to operate like this.
