English term or phrase: miser
I need to find out a pure word for miser in Panjabi. I know that a word Kanjoos is there but it is close to Hindi and Urdu rather than Panjabi.

In view of position explained above, please let me have a pure word for miser in Panjabi.

Thanks in advance.

Shoom


Explanation:
In this case "Shoom" appears to be most apt.
There's another word for "miser" in Pbi., if you're familiar with - "Kirsi" (i.e. the one who does "kirs").
More colloquial ones are - "Cheeparh" and "Makhichoos"
