The ancient text Natyashastra elaborates on various nayikas (heroine) classified according to their situation in love. Love is classified into two categories viz. love in separation (viyog) and love in union (samyog).

The artist has portrayed the virahini nayika; she who is separated from her lover, suffering from anxiety and love longings. With vacuous eyes, she looks beyond the viewer. She sees no reason to dress in attention – seeking diaphanous clothes or ostentatious jewellery. Dressed in a simple rust-orange attire that covers her head as well and simple jewellery, she yearns for her lover; the anxious eyes, the smile-less lips, the pallor all speak of her grief. Learning on the door, she hopefully looks at the track; a miracle might happen and her lover might return.

To underplay the situation of 'viraha' and 'viyog', the artist dresses up the nayika in bright clothes but does not use restraint while portraying emotion on her face. Her sadness reaches out to the viewer.
