KALA ACANA

Thai Unknown Goddess

Also known as Nang Ajna, Nang Kala Anjana, Kahn Atchana, Kala-ajjana

A mother of monkeys

She was the wife of Lord Khodam, a character with a complicated back-story involving an enormous talking beard. (You wouldn’t like to know more about that, would you? We thought not.)

Due to her irresistible beauty and just a touch of sneaky Godly scheming, Phra In descended from the skies to make love her her.

Well, that was nice, and the result was Phali, a bouncing baby boy. Lord Khodam was highly pleased – because he thought the boy was his.

Then what do you know? The same thing happened again with another deity. Sun God Phra Athit decided to get in on the act and impregnated her with Sukreep. Again, Lord Khodam had no clue.

They happily raised the kids and all was wonderful, but Khodam’s daughter SAVAHA blew the whistle on Kala Acana’s secret liaisons and Khodam went ape. In fact he went so ape that he turned Phali and Sukreep into monkeys.

GodNote: Kala Acana is possibly the Thai version of ANJANA DEVI, although there is a large mountain of obscurity over the details which our data dwarves are still attempting to tunnel through.
