snuṣā स्नुषा

Definition: Denotes the daughter-in-law ’ in relation primarily to her father-in-law, but also to her mother-in-law. In the latter sense the word appears in the Rigveda in the epithet su-snuṣā, ‘having a good daughter-in-law,’ used of Vṛṣākapāyī, while in the former it occurs in several passages, where the daughter- in-law’s respect for her father-in-law is mentioned, a respect which spirituous liquor alone causes to be violated. See also śvaśura and Pati.
