    Mirror plays an important role in the poem The Queen’s Rival. Although Queen Gulnaar has everything around her which an ordinary human dreams of, yet the mirror shows her, her beauty which she is tired of, empty splendour and joy without any worry. The mirror shows how alone she is in the world of perfection.

    Whenever she gazes herself in the mirror, she sees her “unsatisfied heart”. Finally, she is relieved of this unsatisfied heart when the mirror is taken away by her young daughter.
