One of many least-known, but so much poignant love tales, is the story of Devayani, daughter of Shukracharya, Guru of the Asuras, and Kacha son of Brihaspati, Guru of the Devas. The Devas or Gods of the Vedic age have been everlasting enemies of the Asuras or Demonic races. How may perhaps the son of the preceptor of the Gods in all probability desire to discover love and happiness with the daughter of the preceptor of the Demons? but love plants within the unlikeliest locations and so Kacha and Devayani started to dream the very unlikely dream. Their love used to be doomed to finish tragically however the how and wherefore of the tragedy is what makes their tale so unforgettable. however the tale doesn’t finish there. in its place, it segues (after a spot of some years) into one other: the affection triangle of Devayani, her former pal Sharmishtha, and the guy they either enjoyed, Yayati. After a quarrel along with her good friend Sharmishtha, Devayani used her father’s impression and tool to strength her pal Sharmishtha to dwell out the remainder of her lifestyles as Devayani’s own maidservant. someday, Devayani chanced on herself trapped on the backside of a good deep within the woodland. quickly after, a stranger wandering in the course of the woodland, chanced throughout her.. On studying that he used to be Yayati, king of a robust kingdom, she blackmailed him right into a courting. yet unknown to Devayani, Yayati fell in love with Sharmishtha, leading to a love triangle that presages the plots of numerous present-day cleaning soap operas. learn directly to see how Ashok’s storytelling shines impressive mild upon this gem pried unfastened from the mosaic of his personal Mahabharata sequence.
