Description: The maid brings a message to her mistress from her lover. An illustration to the Rasikpriya (The Moods of the Beloved) by Kesavadas Sanadhya Misra, a famous poet of Orchha in Bundelkhand in the late 16th century. In the 15th and 16th centuries Rajput princesses often selected their own lovers and husbands. Moreover, the princes had illicit relations not only with courtesans and concubines, but also with married women
and some were slain by the husbands. The emotions of such women (nayika) are the subject of innumerable Hindi poems.
