IN THE EARLIER VEDIC ACCOUNTS, "INDRANI" WAS DEPICTED AS A FEMALE SHADOW OF "INDRA". SHE WAS, FOR A SHORT WHILE, CONSIDERED TO BE AN EVIL SPIRIT. SHE WAS SAID TO BE THE DAUGHTER OF A DEMON; THUS, SHE IS SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS THE GODDESS OF WRATH. THEN, IN LATER HINDU INTERPRETATIONS, SHE BEGAN PERSONIFYING JEALOUSY AND EVIL INTENT, BUT AFTER A FEW YEARS, SHE BECAME AN IMPORTANT AND HIGHLY WORSHIPED ASTRAL SPIRIT IN SOUTHERN INDIA AND IS WORSHIPED THERE UNTIL THIS DAY...
...AND, ACCORDING TO THE "RIG VEDA", "INDRANI" IS CONSIDERED A MOST FORTUNATE FEMALE FOR INDRA GRANTED HER IMMORTALITY. IT IS SAID THAT HE CHOSE HER OVER ALL OF THE OTHER GODDESSES BECAUSE OF HER MAGNETIC ATTRACTIONS. THOUGH, SHE HAS NEVER BEEN HELD IN VERY HIGH ESTEEM AS A GODDESS, A "PUJA" DEDICATED TO HER IS PERFORMED DURING THE A"SHADA NAVRAT".
