Vat Savitri Vrata

Savitri-Vrata is observed by Hindu women in honor of the legendary princess Savitri. She loved her husband, Satyavan, so much that she refused to leave him when he died, eventually persuading Yama, King of Death, to give him back. Women whose husbands are alive spend the day fasting and praying, anointing their husbands' foreheads with sandalwood paste, and showering them with gifts. Women whose husbands have died beg to be delivered from widowhood in a future existence. The vrata, or vow, is a ritual practice observed by Hindu women to obtain their wish. More...

Cannot imagine my wife fasting, praying and worshiping me whole day long. It would seem rather weird to me.

14 years sounds not so bad, but what about 40 years lasting vow offered by son for his father? And mother doing everything whatever possible to erase the memory of his father?
