Urvashi was a fairy who, according to one of the many legends, was created by Indra. She was believed to be the most beautiful of all the Apsaras in his court. The character is said to be eternally youthful but always mysterious. This poem, unlike most of Shri Dinkar’s works composed chiefly in Veer rasa, is written in Shringar rasa, which could roughly be translated as the romantic or erotic love genre. This work won him the most prestigious Jnanpith Award in the year 1972. This work showed that Ramdhari Dinkar had a wide armoury of writing styles and is regarded as one of the best works ever composed in the language of Hindi.
