International Interest. Also see international interest. In one instance in the Mahabharata , Indra is said to have been cursed by having his beard turned to gold as he seduces Ahalya, while a curse by Kaushika sometimes interpreted as synonymous to Gautama is cited as the reason for his castration.

Ahalya claims her innocence this part is not found in all manuscripts , but Gautama agrees to accept her only when she is sanctified by offering Rama hospitality.

Ahalya's defence plea is also found in some of the Purana s. In the Brahma Purana , Ahalya is cursed to become a dried up stream, but pleads her innocence and produces servants, who were also deceived by Indra's disguise, as witnesses.

Gautama reduces the curse on his "faithful wife" and she is redeemed when she joins the Gautami Godavari river as a stream. Indra is cursed to carry his shame in the form of a thousand vulvae on his body, but the vulvae turn into eyes as he bathes in the Gautami.

The Brahma Purana is a rare exception where Rama is dropped from the narrative. Instead, the greatness of the Gautami river is illustrated.

The beguiled Ahalya declares herself blameless, but Gautama considers her impure and curses her to be reduced to a mere skeleton of skin and bones.

He decrees that she will regain her beautiful form when Rama laughs at seeing her so afflicted, dried out a reminder of the dried stream motif , without a body the Ramayana curse and lying on the path an attribute often used to describe a stone.

When Rama comes, he proclaims her innocence and Indra's guilt, whereupon Ahalya returns to her heavenly abode and dwells with Gautama. In the popular retelling of the legend in later works, as well as in theatre and electronic media, Ahalya is turned to stone by Gautama's curse and returns to her human form only after being brushed by Rama's foot.

According to the Brahma Vaivarta Purana , Gautama curses Indra to bear a thousand vulvae, which will turn to eyes when he worships the sun-god Surya.

Ahalya, though innocent, is turned to stone for sixty thousand years and destined to be redeemed only by Rama's touch.

Ahalya accepts the verdict without debate. In another version in the same Purana , Gautama catches Indra fleeing as a cat and curses him with castration.

Ahalya's plea of innocence is acknowledged by Gautama, who declares that her mind is pure and she has kept the "vow of chastity and fidelity", but another man's seed has defiled her body.

Gautama orders her to go to the forest and become a stone until rescued by the touch of Rama's feet.

After she is freed from the curse, Gautama and Ahalya are reconciled and they spend their days in bed, exploring sexual techniques.

The Skanda Purana tells that when Gautama arrives, Ahalya explains the whole tale truthfully, but is cursed by Gautama to become a stone, because he believes that she acted as a rolling stone, unable to recognise the difference between Indra's and Gautama's gestures and movements.

The touch of Rama's feet is prophesied to be her saviour. The terrified Indra escapes as a cat and is cursed with castration.

When Gautama arrives after the act, Indra tries to flee as a cat but is cursed to bear the marks of a thousand vulvae.

When asked by Gautama about her visitor, Ahalya wittily answers that it was a majjara , a word meaning either "cat" or, when split as ma-jara , "my lover".

Gautama laughs and curses her to be turned into stone, but decrees that she will be released by Rama since she at least spoke the truth.

The petrification motif also appears in non-scriptural works. The Raghuvamsa of Kalidasa generally dated 4th century CE notes that the wife of Gautama unnamed here momentarily becomes the wife of Indra.

Without explicitly mentioning the curse, it relates further that she regains her beautiful form and casts away her stony appearance, owing to the grace provided by the dust of Rama's feet, which redeems her.

As in other versions of the tale, the repentant Ahalya is turned to stone, only to be liberated by Rama, and Indra runs away disguised as a cat but is cursed to bear the marks of a thousand vulvae.

The Ramavataram is an example of the Bhakti-era poets who exalt Rama as a saviour. Although opinions differ on whether the Bala Kanda narrative of Ahalya refers to the divinity of Rama, later sources assert Rama's divine status, portraying Ahalya as a condemned woman rescued by God.

The main theme of such narratives is her deliverance by Rama, which is seen as proof of his compassion. Like most other versions of the story, Ahalya is turned into stone and advised to engross herself in meditation of Rama, "the Supreme Lord".

When Rama touches the stone with his foot on Vishvamitra's advice, Ahalya rises as a beautiful maiden and sings a long panegyric dedicated to Rama.

She describes his iconographic form and exalts him as an avatar of Vishnu and source of the universe to whom many divinities pay their respects.

After worshipping him, she returns to Gautama. At the end of the narrative, Ahalya's hymn is prescribed as an ideal benediction for a devotee to gain Rama's favour.

In this epic, Vishvamitra tells Rama that the cursed Ahalya has assumed the form of a rock and is patiently awaiting the dust from Rama's feet.

The narrative ends with praise for Rama's compassion. In some rare exceptions, the curse is dropped. In an instance in the Mahabharata , where details of the seduction are absent, an agitated Gautama orders his son Chirakari to behead his "polluted" mother and leaves the ashram.

However, Chirakari is hesitant to follow the order and later concludes that Ahalya is innocent. Gautama returns and repents his hasty decision, realising that Indra is the guilty party.

He must also ensure that one quarter of the crops is dedicated to Gautama. Here, Ahalya is interpreted as dry and burnt land, eager for the rains sent by Indra, who is tamed by the wild cyclonic Gautama.

Ahalya has been examined in a new light by several modern writers, most commonly through short stories or through poetry in various Indian languages.

Ahalya's tale lives on in modern-day poetry, including works by Rabindranath Tagore in Bengali and English; [7] P.

Narasimhachar 's Kannada poetic drama, Ahalya , which weighs kama against dharma pleasure against duty ; [16] [62] and the works of the Sanskrit scholar and poet Chandra Rajan.

Early in the 20th century, the old norms were reasserted. Subramania Mudaliar in his Tamil poem describes Ahalya lecturing Indra on chastity, but Indra's lust compels him to rape her.

Gautama turns Ahalya to stone to free her from the trauma. The Tamil writer Yogiyar portrays an innocent Ahalya, who sleeps with the disguised Indra, overcome with guilt and asking for punishment.

Other authors reinterpreted the Ahalya legend from a very different perspective, often depicting Ahalya as a rebel and telling the story from her angle.

Narayan — focuses on the psychological details of the story, reusing the old tale of Indra's disguise as Gautama, his flight as a cat and Ahalya's petrifaction.

Ramavarier and M. Parvati Amma When Gautama persuades her to lie to society by claiming to have been raped, she debates chastity and freedom of mind with him.

Some writers try to imagine Ahalya's life after the curse and redemption, a denouement which remains undisclosed in the ancient scriptures.

Sreedevi's Malayalam language work translated as "Woman of Stone" focus on Rama's "double standard" from a feminist perspective.

They ask why Rama frees Ahalya from being cursed for adultery, but punishes his wife Sita over false accusations of adultery with her kidnapper, Ravana.

Sreedevi portrays her turning into stone upon learning that Sita was banished from the kingdom on charges of adultery even after proving her chastity through the trial.

Pudhumaipithan also narrates how, after the redemption, Ahalya suffers from " post-trauma repetition syndrome ", repeatedly re-experiencing Indra's seduction and Gautama's fury, as well as suffering the ire of a conservative society that rejects her.

Sivasekaram's Tamil poem Ahalikai examines the stone motif in Ahalya's tale: she marries a husband who is no more interested in her than a stone and briefly encounters joy with Indra, only to end up cursed to become a lifeless stone.

The poet asks if it was better for Ahalya to remain physically a stone and retain her dignity rather than return to a stony marriage.

Pichamurthy —76 presents Ahalya as an allegorical representation of life, with Gautama as the mind and Indra pleasure.

The Marxist critic Kovai Gnani, in his poem Kallihai , represents Ahalya as the oppressed class and Rama as an ideal future without exploitation.

Gautama and Indra represent feudalism and capitalism. Love, sex and desire become important elements of the plot in Sant Singh Sekhon 's Punjabi play Kalakar , which places the epic drama in the modern age.

It depicts Ahalya as a free-spirited woman, who dares to be painted nude by Inder Indra , a pupil of the art professor, Gautama, and defends her decision against her husband's criticisms.

Madhavan 's Malayalam story April also retells Ahalya's tale in a modern setting, wherein Ahalya, accused of adultery, is beaten by her husband, leaving her in a coma from which the neurologist , Rama, revives her.

Here, Ahalya and Indra fall in love and continue their affair, despite being punished by Ahalya's jealous husband. After death, they reunite in their next birth.

The story of Ahalya Moksham has also been inspiration to films, plays and dance dramas. In December , a group of Indian Classical dance practitioners living in the Middle East, organised a major event titled "Ahalya" in Muscat, Oman to celebrate the story of Ahalya.

The 'Dance Drama' with intermittent English narratives linked the story with issues of women in modern world and value of womanhood. It is clearly evident that even today, many artists and choreographers draw inspiration from the story of Ahalya to create modern version of the legend.

In this version, Shatananda asks Vishvamitra anxiously about the well-being of his "renowned" mother. Besides these, an unnamed daughter is also alluded to in the narrative.

Another legend, generally told in Indian folk tales, states that Aruna , the charioteer of the sun-god Surya, once became a woman named Aruni and entered an assembly of celestial nymphs, where no man except Indra was allowed.

Indra fell in love with Aruni and fathered a son named Vali. The next day, at Surya's request, Aruna again assumed female form, and Surya fathered a son, Sugriva.

Both children were given to Ahalya for rearing, but Gautama cursed them, causing them to turn into monkeys , as he did not like them.

He consequently drives the brothers away and curses them to become monkeys. Enraged, Ahalya curses Anjani to give birth to a monkey too.

Anjani bears Hanuman , the monkey-god and helper of Rama. However, Anjani is cursed by Gautama in these versions, generally for aiding Indra and Ahalya in concealing the secret.

Some Tamil castes trace their ancestry to Ahalya and Indra's liaison; the castes are named after Ahalya's children.

Gautama finds the three boys and names them according to their behaviour: Agamudayar derived from "brave" , who confronts Gautama, Maravar derived from "tree" , who climbs a tree and Kallar derived from "thief" or "rock" , who hides like a thief behind a large rock.

A fourth child, Vellala , is added in some versions. In another variant, the liaison is replaced by penance and worship offered by Ahalya to Indra, who gifts her the children as a reward.

A well-known verse about Ahalya runs: [6] [89]. English translation Ahalya, Draupadi , Sita , Tara and Mandodari One should forever remember the five virgins who are the destroyers of great sins.

Note: A variant of this prayer replaces Sita with Kunti. Orthodox Hindus, especially Hindu wives, remember the panchakanya , the five virgins or maidens, in this daily morning prayer.

Another view does not regard the panchakanya as ideal women who should be emulated. He rhetorically asks, "Are then Ahalya, Draupadi, Kunti, Tara, and Mandodari not chaste wives because each has 'known' a man, or more than one , other than her husband?

The place where Ahalya is held to have practised her penance and was redeemed has been celebrated in scriptures as a sacred place called the Ahalya-tirtha.

A tirtha is a sacred place with a body of water, where pilgrims generally bathe to purify themselves. The location of the Ahalya-tirtha is disputed: according to some scriptures, it is on the river Godavari, others place it on the river Narmada.

Two sites are widely held to be the Ahalya-tirtha. One is located near Ahalyeshvara Temple in Bhalod , on the banks of the Narmada; another is located in Darbhanga district , Bihar.

This is to be done on the day of Kamadeva, in the Hindu month of Chaitra. According to the texts, he who bathes in the tirtha will enjoy pleasure with the celestial nymphs.

For Bhattacharya, Ahalya is the eternal woman who responds to her inner urges and the advances of the divine ruler, a direct contrast to her ascetic husband, who did not satisfy her carnal desire.

The author regards Ahalya as an independent woman who makes her own decisions, takes risks and is driven by curiosity to experiment with the extraordinary and then accept the curse imposed on her by patriarchal society.

Or do we learn from Ahalya who made a conscious choice to fulfil her need and yet has been extolled? Like Bhattacharya, Meena Kelkar, author of Subordination of Woman: a New Perspective , feels that Ahalya was made venerable due to her acceptance of gender norms; she ungrudgingly accepted the curse while acknowledging her need for punishment.

However, Kelkar adds that another reason for making Ahalya immortal in scripture could be that her punishment acts as a warning and deterrent to women.

Jaya adds that Ahalya's actions and the resultant curse are a warning that such immoral behaviour leads to doom, although sincere penitence and complete surrender to God can erase the gravest sins.

The bride is also shown the star associated with the chaste Arundhati, who is cast as her ideal. The right-wing Hindu women's organisation Rashtra Sevika Samiti considers Ahalya the symbol of "Hindu woman's and Hindu society's rape by the outsider", especially British colonisers and Muslim invaders , but also Hindu men.

A similar tale of divine seduction appears in Greek mythology , where Zeus , a king-of-the-gods figure akin to Indra, seduces Alcmene by assuming the form of her husband, resulting in the birth of the legendary hero Heracles.

Like Ahalya, Alcmene falls victim to Zeus's trickery in some versions or, recognising his true identity, proceeds with the affair in others. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Year Name poster for Ahlaya. Sources: U. The Shatapatha Brahmana' s commentator, Kumarila Bhatta c. The Bala Kanda of the Ramayana is the earliest text to describe Ahalya's seduction in detail.

She sees through his disguise, but consents owing to her "curiosity". According to another interpretation, Ahalya's pride in her beauty compels her.

However, in this text Indra arrives undisguised. Although the Bala Kanda mentions that Ahalya consciously commits adultery, the Uttar Kanda of the Ramayana and the Puranas compiled between the 4th and 16th centuries CE absolve her of all guilt.

According to Söhnen-Thieme, the usage of the words "violated" and "renowned" indicates that Ahalya is not considered an adulteress. The Puranas introduce themes that are echoed in later works, including the deception of the unsuspecting Ahalya by Indra's devious disguise as Gautama in his absence.

Ahalya, engrossed in worship, rejects him, considering it inappropriate to have sex at the cost of neglecting the gods. Indra reminds her that her first duty is to serve him.

Finally Ahalya gives in, but Gautama learns of Indra's deception through his supernatural powers and returns to the ashram.

Assuming Gautama's form, Indra has sex with her until they sink to the river bed in exhaustion. However, Gautama catches them in the act.

Another version in the same Purana focuses on the question of how the chaste Ahalya was seduced by Indra.

In this version, Indra approaches Ahalya on the banks of the Mandakini river in his own form to ask for a sexual favour, which is flatly refused by Ahalya.

Indra subsequently poses as Gautama and fulfils his objective. In some versions, though initially deluded by Indra's disguise, Ahalya eventually recognises the impersonator.

In the Skanda Purana , Ahalya smells Indra's celestial fragrance and realises her folly as he embraces and kisses her and "so forth" probably indicating a sexual act.

Threatening Indra with a curse, she compels him to reveal his true form. Here, Ahalya agrees to have sex with the disguised Indra because she has long been craving affection from her ascetic husband.

When Brahma creates Ahalya as the most beautiful being, she falls in love with Indra and longs for him, but Brahma grants her to Gautama.

After Ahalya's marriage, Indra too craves for her. He frequently visits her and flirts with her in Gautama's absence.

At one point, Ahalya receives a visit from Indra's female messenger, who proceeds to mock husbands who avoid sex by saying that it is not the right day for pleasure.

Ahalya protests, maintaining that she imagines Gautama to be Indra as they have sex and that a woman should be a stone, forgoing all thought of sexual gratification.

That night, when Ahalya longs for conjugal bliss, Gautama refuses her, saying that she is not in her fertile period. Agitated, she wishes that Indra was there to satisfy her.

Indra perceives her wish and comes in Gautama's disguise, but is revealed by his seductive speech. Ignoring the deception, Ahalya joyously makes love to him.

While most versions agree that Gautama curses Ahalya after discovering the affair, the curse varies from text to text. However, almost all versions describe Rama as the agent of her liberation and redemption.

The Bala Kanda mentions that Gautama spots Indra, who is still in disguise, and curses him to lose his testicles. Gautama then curses Ahalya to remain invisible to all beings for thousands of years, fast by subsisting only on air, suffer and sleep in ashes and be tormented by guilt.

Nevertheless, he assures her that her sin will be expiated once she extends her hospitality to Rama, who will visit the ashram.

Thereafter, Gautama abandons the ashram and goes to the Himalayas to practise asceticism. The Ayodhya prince Rama, his brother Lakshmana and their guru , the sage Vishvamitra pass Gautama's desolate ashram while travelling to King Janaka 's court in Mithila.

As they near the ashram, Vishvamitra recounts the tale of Ahalya's curse and instructs Rama to save Ahalya. Although Ahalya is cursed, Vishvamitra nevertheless describes her as goddess-like and illustrious, [42] repeatedly calling her mahabhaga , a Sanskrit compound maha and bhaga translated as "most illustrious and highly distinguished"; [7] [43] [44] [45] this interpretation contrasts with that of Rambhadracharya , who believes that the word mahabhaga , in the context of Ahalya's story, means "extremely unfortunate" maha and abhaga.

Ahalya is described as glowing from the intensity of her ascetic devotion, but hidden from the world like the Sun obscured by dark clouds, the light of a full moon hidden by mist or a blazing flame masked by smoke.

Under the direction of his guru, Rama considers Ahalya pure and unblemished and, accompanied by Lakshamana, gives her obeisance by touching her feet , an act that restores her social status.

She greets them, recalling Gautama's words that Rama would be her redeemer. Ahalya extends her warmest reception, making a "welcome offering" of forest fruits and washing their feet, an act of respect according to the rites of that era.

The gods and other celestial beings shower Rama and Ahalya with flowers and bow to Ahalya, who has been purified through her penance.

Gautama then returns to his ashram and accepts her. In one instance in the Mahabharata , Indra is said to have been cursed by having his beard turned to gold as he seduces Ahalya, while a curse by Kaushika sometimes interpreted as synonymous to Gautama is cited as the reason for his castration.

Ahalya claims her innocence this part is not found in all manuscripts , but Gautama agrees to accept her only when she is sanctified by offering Rama hospitality.

They ask why Rama frees Ahalya from being cursed for adultery, but punishes his wife Sita over false accusations of adultery with her kidnapper, Ravana.

Sreedevi portrays her turning into stone upon learning that Sita was banished from the kingdom on charges of adultery even after proving her chastity through the trial.

Pudhumaipithan also narrates how, after the redemption, Ahalya suffers from " post-trauma repetition syndrome ", repeatedly re-experiencing Indra's seduction and Gautama's fury, as well as suffering the ire of a conservative society that rejects her.

Sivasekaram's Tamil poem Ahalikai examines the stone motif in Ahalya's tale: she marries a husband who is no more interested in her than a stone and briefly encounters joy with Indra, only to end up cursed to become a lifeless stone.

The poet asks if it was better for Ahalya to remain physically a stone and retain her dignity rather than return to a stony marriage.

Pichamurthy —76 presents Ahalya as an allegorical representation of life, with Gautama as the mind and Indra pleasure.

The Marxist critic Kovai Gnani, in his poem Kallihai , represents Ahalya as the oppressed class and Rama as an ideal future without exploitation.

Gautama and Indra represent feudalism and capitalism. Love, sex and desire become important elements of the plot in Sant Singh Sekhon 's Punjabi play Kalakar , which places the epic drama in the modern age.

It depicts Ahalya as a free-spirited woman, who dares to be painted nude by Inder Indra , a pupil of the art professor, Gautama, and defends her decision against her husband's criticisms.

Madhavan 's Malayalam story April also retells Ahalya's tale in a modern setting, wherein Ahalya, accused of adultery, is beaten by her husband, leaving her in a coma from which the neurologist , Rama, revives her.

Here, Ahalya and Indra fall in love and continue their affair, despite being punished by Ahalya's jealous husband.

After death, they reunite in their next birth. The story of Ahalya Moksham has also been inspiration to films, plays and dance dramas.

In December , a group of Indian Classical dance practitioners living in the Middle East, organised a major event titled "Ahalya" in Muscat, Oman to celebrate the story of Ahalya.

The 'Dance Drama' with intermittent English narratives linked the story with issues of women in modern world and value of womanhood. It is clearly evident that even today, many artists and choreographers draw inspiration from the story of Ahalya to create modern version of the legend.

In this version, Shatananda asks Vishvamitra anxiously about the well-being of his "renowned" mother. Besides these, an unnamed daughter is also alluded to in the narrative.

Another legend, generally told in Indian folk tales, states that Aruna , the charioteer of the sun-god Surya, once became a woman named Aruni and entered an assembly of celestial nymphs, where no man except Indra was allowed.

Indra fell in love with Aruni and fathered a son named Vali. The next day, at Surya's request, Aruna again assumed female form, and Surya fathered a son, Sugriva.

Both children were given to Ahalya for rearing, but Gautama cursed them, causing them to turn into monkeys , as he did not like them.

He consequently drives the brothers away and curses them to become monkeys. Enraged, Ahalya curses Anjani to give birth to a monkey too.

Anjani bears Hanuman , the monkey-god and helper of Rama. However, Anjani is cursed by Gautama in these versions, generally for aiding Indra and Ahalya in concealing the secret.

Some Tamil castes trace their ancestry to Ahalya and Indra's liaison; the castes are named after Ahalya's children. Gautama finds the three boys and names them according to their behaviour: Agamudayar derived from "brave" , who confronts Gautama, Maravar derived from "tree" , who climbs a tree and Kallar derived from "thief" or "rock" , who hides like a thief behind a large rock.

A fourth child, Vellala , is added in some versions. In another variant, the liaison is replaced by penance and worship offered by Ahalya to Indra, who gifts her the children as a reward.

A well-known verse about Ahalya runs: [6] [89]. English translation Ahalya, Draupadi , Sita , Tara and Mandodari One should forever remember the five virgins who are the destroyers of great sins.

Note: A variant of this prayer replaces Sita with Kunti. Orthodox Hindus, especially Hindu wives, remember the panchakanya , the five virgins or maidens, in this daily morning prayer.

Another view does not regard the panchakanya as ideal women who should be emulated. He rhetorically asks, "Are then Ahalya, Draupadi, Kunti, Tara, and Mandodari not chaste wives because each has 'known' a man, or more than one , other than her husband?

The place where Ahalya is held to have practised her penance and was redeemed has been celebrated in scriptures as a sacred place called the Ahalya-tirtha.

A tirtha is a sacred place with a body of water, where pilgrims generally bathe to purify themselves. The location of the Ahalya-tirtha is disputed: according to some scriptures, it is on the river Godavari, others place it on the river Narmada.

Two sites are widely held to be the Ahalya-tirtha. One is located near Ahalyeshvara Temple in Bhalod , on the banks of the Narmada; another is located in Darbhanga district , Bihar.

This is to be done on the day of Kamadeva, in the Hindu month of Chaitra. According to the texts, he who bathes in the tirtha will enjoy pleasure with the celestial nymphs.

For Bhattacharya, Ahalya is the eternal woman who responds to her inner urges and the advances of the divine ruler, a direct contrast to her ascetic husband, who did not satisfy her carnal desire.

The author regards Ahalya as an independent woman who makes her own decisions, takes risks and is driven by curiosity to experiment with the extraordinary and then accept the curse imposed on her by patriarchal society.

Or do we learn from Ahalya who made a conscious choice to fulfil her need and yet has been extolled? Like Bhattacharya, Meena Kelkar, author of Subordination of Woman: a New Perspective , feels that Ahalya was made venerable due to her acceptance of gender norms; she ungrudgingly accepted the curse while acknowledging her need for punishment.

However, Kelkar adds that another reason for making Ahalya immortal in scripture could be that her punishment acts as a warning and deterrent to women.
