    I recently listened to a talk by Alan Watts where he happened to mention that  Sanscrit, the 'perfect language', never referred to the word 'men' ( inclusive of women) as is commonly the use today. It referred to the expression 'human beings' through a name derived from the root name 'Manu'. Alan Watts quoted the precise name used in Sanscrit, but I am sorry to say that I have lost it...not the meaning!
