Description

This is the story of Savitri, a 26-year old girl from a village called Balibeedi. Savitri’s mother Padmavati returned to her maternal home in Balibeedi with her three daughters (Savitri, Vinuta and Ranjita) about 15 years ago. The reason for Padmavati’s return – a bitter experience with her husband, Nanjunda – is not clear. When Padmavati returned, her father Vishwanath welcomed her and the children with open arms. Unfortunately, when the 11-year-old Savitri sat on his lap, Vishwanath suffered a paralytic attack and was confined to bed ever since. Vishwanath’s son Srinivas, who works in Bangalore, did not return to take care of his ailing father. It was up to Padmavati and Savitri to tend to Vishwanath for nearly 15 years. When Savitri came of age, Padmavati made repeated attempts to get her married off; none of them were fruitful. After her grandfather’s accident, Savitri came to be considered an ill-women by everyone around her.
