  8. “…what an ethereal shape! Such a broad back-like an ocean with muscles rippling across it-and then that small, feminine waist…” (Hayavadana) Here, the attractive outlook of Kapila is the Vibhāva (Alambanavibhāva as Kapila is a human being), the garden and that tree on which Kapila climbs is also vibhāva (Uddipana as tree is non-human thing), Anubhāva is the opened eyes of Padmini constantly looking at Kapila’s body, which appeals to the dominant state of love which results into the realization of Sringāra rasa or the erotic sentiment.
  9. Conclusion  A mixture of several emotions  Skillful use of dramatic techniques  Effective language  No dominant Rasa in this play
