Does not know her home – comes in the evening from the house

Grows old – Nonchi akka comes before the audience

“ Teeth falling from the mouth mucus from the eyes and dirty saliva from the mouth

body shivering - Nonchi akka comes running?"

This face displays both humours and insult. Some observers state that the Nonchi akka face showing old age is a high-quality creation. A special feature of the Nonchi akka’s character is that it is old, knows wiles, has young ideas in the mind, and these qualities are displayed in this character.
