(Main story) Vasanthi was brought up even without allowing her to know the difference between a male and a female. When youth began to blossom she struggled to learn about the body’s sexuality and its purpose in life. She sang a lyric superbly as Mohini in the drama Mohini Rukmangada; Saradhy who was also a friend of her father Sireshkumar, played the role of Rukmangada. Her singing sent the audience into raptures. A contact during the drama excited traces of physical love between them; he understood what it was but she was unable to comprehend the strange feeling. Saradhy used to come and help her remove her make-up before he attended to himself. She felt that she should not call him that day and should not be seen by him. She removed her make-up and went home. He knew her intimately from her childhood and continued to treat her like his daughter. He was greatly respected as an actor but no one had a good opinion of his moral character. The effects of the new experience continued to haunt both of them. Vasanthi persuaded Saradhy to attend her musical consort. He did but the stares and murmurs of the audience, made him leave abruptly which angered Vasanthi. He pacified her the next day. He casually reed the drama of Rana Pratapa Simha and suddenly decided to enact the drama after suitably rewriting it. With the help of Kireeti, he completed the task. Next day he went to Vasanthi’s house. She told her father that it was Saradhy who taught her how to appreciate the subtle meaning of music and to enjoy its beauty. She said that even her superb action was a reflection of watching a supreme actor like Saradhy and that to achieve salvation she should acquire the quality of total immersion and involvement, possible only through Saradhy. She requested him never to desert her. He gave her her portion in the Ranapratapa drama and explained her role. He distributed the portions of the other actors to them. That evening he went to the beach and walked aimlessly for hours. As the darkness was fading he saw that the early morning light reflected in the droplets caused by waves splashing against the coast, spread like white clouds and dissolved the dark color of the sea. All colors and their beauty were illusory. Umapathy said that the artiste can achieve salvation through exploring this beauty. He went to Umapathy to find it out. As Saradhy was exhausted both had their breakfast and rested on easy chairs. Saradhy fell asleep soon. Vasanthi asked Saradhy the secret of her acting so well. He replied that some desire that she was unaware of, has germinated in her heart and was maturing without her knowledge and that during such periods one can accomplish anything one attempted. Kalidasa explained that a human being realizes his full potential after experiencing deep anguish. Commenting on some practices, Umapathy said that drama was all about creating an illusion by the actors for the audience to experience and to enjoy it. If both groups united, there was no illusion and no drama. Vasanthi tried to learn the meaning of ‘Touch’ by experiment and advice from Saradhy. He was always discreet and guided her wade through life successfully. Saradhy desired sanyasa. He performed “Kamadahanam” drama to destroy all his love towards women but failed to achieve it. By yoga, he transferred to Kireeti what attracted Vasanthi, got her married to Kireeti and moved away from them. He was addicted to drama and continued to give performances even as he changed religions and residences. Saradhy was performing in their town, a drama in which Vasanthi played the heroine earlier. She requested him to permit her play that role again; he stoutly refused. She convinced the day’s heroine and replaced her after the drama commenced.
