SAVITRI
'A greatness in thy daughter's soul resides. That can transform herself and all around, but must cross on stones on suffering to its goal.'

                                                                                    – Sri Aurobindo: Savitri, Book VI

Unique among women in the Indian epics and scriptures, Savitri embodies not just the complete love for and commitment to her husband, which all epic heroines display, but matches that with the power of absolute will and action. Like Sita, Shakuntala, Damayanti and Draupadi, she is also a victim of circumstances. But unlike them, she does not seek help from without to free herself and her husband from a tragic fate.

Once she has decided to marry Satyavan, even with dire foreknowledge of the catastrophic event, Savitri does not regret or waver from her choice. In fact, she becomes determined to confront and challenge fate and bend it to her indomitable will.
