This Indian fairy tale begins when a ship encounters a storm at sea and promptly disintegrates. All hands on board are lost save for one young sailor, who meets a mermaid queen. He becomes her king and they are very happy together, but after some time they separate. This fairy tale is unusual in recognizing that some relationships can be impermanent without either party being evil. The narrative does not condemn the sailor, and more importantly, it does not condemn the mermaid.
