How does the mirror reflect the turmoil experienced by the monk as a result of the working of the spell?
The mirror was given to Prakriti by her mother for her to look into it and find out the where the monk had reached as a result of the spells. Apart from the location, the author portrays the mirror as an indicator of personal happiness, devoutness and humanity within a person. As the mother’s spell grew stronger, Ananda the monk was losing his spirituality and was succumbing to the evils of lust. The mirror was able to describe this change of personality of the monk throughout the narration of the play. Towards the end, the once radiant and inspiring aura of the devout Buddhist monk is transformed into an uncharismatic and deceitful human depicted by a defeated personality.
