J is for Jalpari #AtoZChallenge

Origin: Punjab Province, India

Description:  Unknown.  Female water spirit/faerie from India.  I imagine a beautiful woman with long black hair and bright black eyes draped in white and blue silk.

Disposition:  She lures men into her embrace so that she can kill them. You can appease her by leaving lamb meat and flowers.  I can also be appeased with lamb and flowers.


  1. I sooo want to be a jalpari when I grow up. Too bad I'm a blonde American. I'd NEVER pull it off!

    1. I know. There has to be something more exciting than a stock broker from upstate New York.

  2. I can be appeased that way as well. I'm with Ophelia. We can all be Jalpari!

  3. Lamb and flowers? Sounds good to me! :)

  4. Okay, put me down as another who's all for lamb (if it could be in a Gyro, even better) and flowers.

  5. Wow, that's awesome. She sounds kind of like the Irish Merrow. Really cool post and happy A-Z blogging!

  6. Sweet! Good thing I am a woman. If I ever go to India I will not have to stuff my pockets with lamb before approaching a body of water. :)

  7. Yikes - that picture is giving me the heebie jeebies! Something about the posture. I will blame you if I have nightmares tonight. :-)

    Wishing you continued success with the A to Z challenge,
