Ks.udraka- is derived from ks.ud-ra- 'small, tiny', which is a deverbal adjective (*ksud-ro- from ks.odati 'crushes, shatters' < *kseud-e-ti) with Slavic cognates (e.g. Polish chudy 'thin, lean' < *ksoud-o-). I don't know the etymology of s'u:dra-, but if it's derived from anything IE, the protoform should be something like *k^uHdro-, certainly unrelated to *kseud-.

What is the etymology of the word, s'u_dra?
Could it be from ks.udraka, maker of miniature beads?
