Indra`s visible appearence:
according to RV 10,95,8 Indra is /hári-keśa/ and /hári-śmaśāru/, of
“yellow-red (golden) hair” and “yellow-red (golden) beard”.
//hári / /is also used of the fire, the sun, of lightening and of Indras
horses - and of the Soma plant.
According to Falk, however, /hári / denotes “yellowish-green to green”
(Falk, p.85, Soma I and II, BSOAS, Vol. 52, No. 1,1989, pp. 77-90 ),
because this - he thinks - makes that colourful epitheton fit to the
“bluish green” (Falk, p.85) colour of the ephedra plant. That would make
Indra the first punk of history.
