Hindu - A princess. Daughter of Ashvapati. Wife of Satyavana. When her husband died, as had been prophesied, within a year of marriage, she followed him into the underworld. Yama rewarded her devotion by granting her three wishes. The first wish restored her father-in-law, Dyumatseni, to his throne, the second restored his eyesight. The third wish was that she might have many children. Yama, realising that he had been tricked, since she could have children only if she had a husband, restored Satyavana to life.
