Another patriarchal story, but is it really that surprising? I am convinced there was a time several millenia back when Shiva did tapas to win Parvati. She is after all the Mother Goddess. Maybe she was named Aparna because he had to match her tapas and go without wearing or eating leaves before she would relent and relieve his love-sickness.
Person 2: NO WAY dude they're really rare! What makes you so sure it was a real aparna?
Person 1: Well, my heart won't stop pounding, and I can't stop smiling.
Girl 2: I don't know, but she must be an Aparna...I mean look at her!!!
