Some words about Satidaha

Satidaho ritual – It is an ancient Hindu religious practice where a widow was burnt alive with her husband’s corpse. In Sanskrit, the word ‘Sati‘ literally means a sacred woman who exhibits ultimate honesty towards her husband and she is veracious to her relatives. But as a tradition, Satidaha means the religious obligation of voluntary burning of a widow with her dead husband, climbing the burning stage of her husband’s funeral in the midst of the crowd. It is not certain when and how such rituals have been developed in a religious manner. Greek author Diodorus (approx. 300 BC) describes a Satidaha incident. This description closely resembles the eighteenth-century Satidaho system.
