They were clearly six and only three were readable:

  1. भय - Fear

  2. सुख - Amusement

  3. रोष - Wrath or rage

But is there some pattern of emotions here which can help us predict which three other needles were? Does it belong to some Hindu ideology emotion set?


It describes the six main emotions:

  1. Anger (रोष)
  2. Disgust
  3. Fear (भय)
  4. Happiness (सुख)
  5. Sadness
  6. Surprise
