sīra सीर

Definition: ‘Plough,’ is mentioned in the Rigveda, and often later. It was large and heavy, as is shown by the fact that six oxen, or eight, or twelve, or even twenty-four,6 were used to drag it. The animals which drew the plough were oxen, which were, no doubt, yoked and harnessed with traces. The ox was guided by the Aṣṭrā, or ‘ goad,’ of the ploughman (cf. Vaiśya). Little is known of the parts of the plough. See Lāng'ala and Phāla.
