What is the role of the mother in Prakriti’s self-realization? What are her hopes and fears for her daughter?
Prakriti’s mother was aware of the consequence of casting the evil spell on the monk. She knew that the spell would change the once humane monk into an earthly being with no conscience or truthfulness. Moreover, the powerful spell she cast upon the monk would take a toll on her life as well. However, she cedes to Prakriti’s deep ingrained desire to possess the monk and decides to cast the spell upon the monk. Later, Prakriti realizes that her desire to lustfully possess the monk has led to the death of her mother as well as the once devout monk being reduced to a common earthly being.
