According to Vishnu Puraan, 1/8, once Kandu Muni was doing Tap. Indra, as usual, got frightened from his Tap and sent an Apsaraa, Pramalochaa, to destroy his Tap. She succeeded in disturbing him and lived with him for several hundred years - 970 years and 6 months. Later they had a daughter named Maarishaa, That Apsaraa left her daughter here on Prithvi and went away to Swarg. Then trees brought that daughter up. When she cried with hunger, Chandramaa gave his index finger to suck upon. She was married to Raajaa Praacheenbarhi's 10 sons Prachetaa Gan and gave birth to Daksh Prajaapati.
