THE KEY CHARACTER OF THE STORY Sage Durvasa was the son of Sage Atri and Devi Anusuya. One version states that he was the incarnation of Lord Shiva, Another version says that Lord Shiva felt that he had an uncontrollable temper and decided to deposit all his temper into the womb of Devi Anusuya. Hence Durvasa was famous in Hindu mythology for his short temper and his very name implies 'one who is difcult to live with'. (dur =impossible & vasa=live) Though Durvasa was feared by all for his short temper, was also extremely pleased if served well and granted boons.
