Times wheel kept rolling. One
month, two months So even the eleventh month passed. Only a month remained! It was
now a matter of days!
Days, too, glided by. Only four days of life were left to Sathyvantha! Savithri spent
three days in religious rites of the most rigorous kind. She fasted for three days. She
was determined not to drink even a drop of water. She worshipped Goddess Savithri, day and
night. She begged the Goddess who had blessed her father, to protect her husband.
She would not listen to anybody. Dyumathsena said, "My daughter Savithri, Why have
you undertaken such rigorous rites? It is not difficult for you to fast for three
Savithri - Father, please bless me that my religious rites may conclude without any
obstacle. I beg of you, please do not ask me to give them up.
