Ms. Jayaraman's private collection

Indra's Wives
acrylic on paper

"Indra is considered to be the king of the gods. Like Zeus, his Greek counterpart, he was the lord of the thunderbolt. His four wives included Menaka and Urvashi, two of the most bewitching beauties of the Devaloka.  Often these two women were sent to earth to distract men of power and meditating sages. Indra never considered it wrong to exploit them, if it enhanced his own position.

I have always felt, that despite all their beauty and position, Menaka and Urvasha must have been very sad."
