      What could the word for a carpenter be?

      There is a word, vardhaki which occurs in the Ra_ma_yan.a connoting a
      carpenter. It is explained in the Sanskrit lexicon as related
      to 'shearing, cutting'.

      There are cognate substratum words in Munda, Gujarati and other
      languages of Bha_rata.
