I have recently added two more piece names from Indian religion, both
oblique triangulators. They are the GURU (4:1 and 5:3) and the SADHU (5:2
and 7:3), and are found in my piece article From Ungulates Outwards. They
may be of use in future variants along similar themes.
	For all your lack of accuracy as to the meanings of Indian titles, you
certainly know of the existence of a lot of them. I am currently planning
a system of names for pieces mixing one- and two-step radial moves built
up from the secular titles SAHIB (Elephant+forward Ferz) and MEMSAHIB
(Dabbaba+forward Wazir). Do you know any other titles ending (or even
starting) with sahib, or related titles, which might suit other such
pieces?
