This excerpt is from the famous epic “Urvashi” by Ramdhari Dinkar. Urvashi, the apsara is madly in love with the earth king “Pururava” to the extent that she wants to relocate from swarga to earth permanently and become an earth woman. Her friends Rambha, Sehjaney and Menaka are perplexed that Urvashi would give up all the comforts and privileges of swarga and become an ordinary earthling for the sake of love of Pururava. Here Rambha is telling Sehjaney that essence of being a Apsara who are not supposed to fall in love but just entertain Devatas. Rajiv Krishna Saxena
