Abstract

Menaka is a heavenly apsara who was born from the mind of Brahma. Extremely beautiful and intelligent in her way, Menaka is a celestial dancer who makes love and leaves. She, like other apsaras, cannot owe anything for herself, including her husband and family. When she was assigned the task of diverting the Brahmarishi from his ardent penance, she falls in love with him and longs to form a familial relationship that is not expected of her. She, her story of love, her longing for familial love, and her choice are analyzed through Lee’s Theory of Colours of Love.
