I am looking to create a version of Titania & Oberon, the Queen & King of the Fairies in Midsummer Night's Dream, that would have context in India. Probably deities or mythological beings associated with nature/forests, but maybe with a tradition of meddling with humanity?

Any of the Rishi (sages) were much like Titania, Oberon, or Puck. They wandered the world and, if offended, could curse or bless with mere words and immediate effect. Specifically, I'm thinking about how the Rishi cursed Pandu to not be able to have children. Pandu's wife called in a favor from another Rishi to work around the curse.
The naga king Vasuki also springs to mind - having family (a daughter, at least) and living near natural environs. His family took Bhima from the river when he had been poisoned by his cousin and cured the poison. He also gave Bhima super strength.
