Vat Savitri fast is very special for married women in Hinduism. The married women pray for unbroken good luck by fasting without water. In the entire Jharkhand, on Thursday, women performed Vat Savitri Puja with full rituals and kept a fast. Since morning, the married women took a bath and dressed like a bride, carrying various types of worship materials in the plate with hand fans, etc., reached under the banyan tree and prayed for the long life of the husband.
Vat Savitri Puja is an authentic and ancient fast to get the unbroken good fortune of married couples. It is mentioned in religious texts that even short-lived husbands become long-lived by observing this fast. When Yamraj had come to take Satyavan’s soul, his wife Savitri also followed him. It is believed that even after Yamraj‘s persuasion, when she did not return, Yamraj was compelled to enter Satyavan’s soul into his dead body.
