Children Sharmishtha

In Hindu mythology, Vrishparva was a Danava king with great powers and magic. He fought and won many wars against Indra with the help of his main priest Shukracharya. He made many attempts to kill Kacha, the son of Brihaspati. His daughter Sharmishtha is a friend of Devayani, the daughter of Sage Shukracharya, the guru of all Asuras, who married King Yayati and took Sharmishtha with her as her maid in punishment for her throwing of Devayani into a well during a furious argument.
