Sringa is an Ancient Indian musical instrument. In an answer to my previous question, it was pointed out that Mahabharat contains a reference to a ruler of the kingdom of Stri Rajya, also known as Sringa.
With respect to this context, I have a few questions.
What is the etymology of the word "Sringa"?
Is there any connection between the two examples for the name (like the ruler getting the name for being an adept player of the instrument etc.)?
What does the Natya Shastra say about the musical instrument Sringa?
