A mythological story in the Hindu epical Mahabharata describes Princess Savitri as a daughter of an hermit king. She was beautiful pure and devotional. She chooses Satyawan, an exiled Prince as her husband. Sage Narada tell her father that Satyawan is destined to die in one year from the day. She declines to change her decision and is married to Satyawan. She leads a life of a devotional hermit. Three days before the foreseen death of Satyawan, she prays and fasts for his life. On the third day, Satyawan while cutting wood collapses and lays his head in Savitri's lap under a grand Banyan tree. Yama [the death God] carries away the soul of Satyawan. She with her divinity, wisdom and noble conduct pleads with him for Satyawan's life. Yama, instead asks her to seek any boon from him other than Satyawan's life. She asks for a son from Satyawan. With no choice left, Yama grants life to Satyawan.
