  • modern media having addled one's subconscious, I'm picturing those handsome, shirtless Egyptians chasing down Moses' flock on wheels, in "Prince of Egypt"

  • Interesting word. All the citations above are from the Mahabharata. Various heroic figures in the story are repeatedly referred to as "car-warrior". Appears to be a translation of the Sanskrit ratha which literally refers to a chariot.


    Can't find an actual definition anywhere, but reading some passages, it looks like these characters are all chariot-mounted archers to whom are ascribed supernatural levels of martial prowess and general badassery. I think the chariots are flying in some cases. There are a lot of connotations I'm sure I'm missing.
