Kinnara

 In Hindu mythology, kinnara are  paradigmatic lovers, celestial musician, half-human and half-bird. Their character is clarified in the Adi parva of theMahabharata where they say: 

We are everlasting lover and beloved. We never separate. We are eternally husband and wife; never do we become mother and father. No offspring is seen in our lap. We are lover and beloved ever-embracing. In between us we do not permit any third creature demanding affection. Our life is a life of perpetual pleasure.
