The Story of Satyavan and Savitri is one of the many tales narrated in the Mahabharat. This is a story of love and dedication. According to legend, when Savitri's husband Satyavan died, Savitri tricked Lord Yam, the lord of death, and compelled him to bring her husband back to life. Therefore, married women in India observe Vat Savitri Vrat for well-being and long life of their husband. This Vrat, or fast, occurs in the months of May or early June, just before the arrival of the monsoons. Curiously enough, married women in Maharashtra, Gujarat and southern Indian states observe Vat Savitri Vrat 15 days later than that of North Indian women.
This tale is based on the story Jackal or Tiger? from Andrew Lang's Fairy Books. This story has been revised and expanded by Amar Vyas and narrated by Sheerali Biju for gaatha story. Theme music Frost Waltz by Kevin McLeod. Image: Pexels dot com

Hi, the story was beautifully narrated by Ms. Biju. What i would suggest is to add value to the stories by adding a moral too. That would encourage the listener to think and imbibe the story well

In my humble opinion, the English used in the script needs quite a bit of work. it needs to be simplified and clarified. As a full grown adult, it grates my ears to listen to convoluted sentences which get in the way of such beautiful stories.
