Kalpavruksha is a samskrit word for the tree which grants one's wishes. Same way, once Parvati
found this Kalpavruksha and wished she must get a girl child who looks
exactly like her. Her wish is granted. The girl thus born is Ashoka Sundari.
Parvati granted a boon to her that daughter will marry King Nahusha
in future. Nahusha is a handsome prince. Parvati thought he is the
ideal match for her beautiful daughter. But as the time passed by,
Ashoka Sundari grew up to become a beautiful lady.
At that time, a demon named Hunda tried to marry her
forcibly seeing her beauty. That time, King Nahusha came to Ashoka
Sundari's rescue and defeated the demon in a fierce battle. Nahusha came
to know that Ashoka Sundari is looking for him.
He told his identity and married her.
Thanks Jaya this could be it. Like the name in the news also suggests. U are a drum of knowledge. What would we do without u.
