Indian Happiness Spirits

Dancing Spirits known as 'The Daughters of Joy'

They are also known as ‘Essences of Water’ as many are water nymphs.

At the last count there were 35 million of them, so to complement the chorus line they could also appear as part of the scenery in the form of clouds, rainbows, butterflies and graceful animals. Even monkeys.
