Apala

Hindu - A woman seduced by Indra. After the love making, Indra granted her three wishes: restoring her father's lost virility, making his fields productive and healing her skin disease. To cure the disease he pulled her three times through the hole in the centre of one of his chariot wheels. The three layers of skin that were stripped off became a hedgehog, a crocodile and a chameleon. In some references, known as Apala.
