DRAUPADI

‘Choose A Husband Worthy Of You’

Savithri grew up. She was a maiden of charming modesty and matchless virtue. She was lovely and bright as a goddess. She was to be married. Many youths sought her hand – strong men and brave men and good and modest men. But every prince who saw her at once felt humble; he felt he was not worthy of her and withdrew.

Ashwapathi was full of admiration for Savithri’s words and conduct. She was the centre of his life. He had offered ‘tapas’ (deep meditation and prayer) for eighteen years for this daughter’ and her radiant liveliness filled his heart with joy. But he grew more and more troubled as days passed and no prince, however, handsome and brave, came forward to marry her.

Ashwapathi called his daughter and said, "Savithri, my child, it is time for you to marry. Go where you will and choose a husband worthy of you." He made all arrangements for her journey.

Savithri - God of Death bowed to her love and devotion and restored her husband to life
