Narayan, full name Rasipuram Krishnaswami Iyer Narayanaswami, was an Indian writer known for his works set in the fictional South Indian town of Malgudi. Narayans short stories have been compared with those of Guy de Maupassant, however, he has also been criticised for the simplicity of his prose. He was also nominated to the Rajya Sabha, the house of Indias parliament.
The Wishes of Savitri by ryansgirl12 Savitri was the name of a Shoyrindu princess whose devotion to her husband went far beyond the realms of normal human experience.
For she was prepared to fight death itself to regain her love, and although there are those today who would call her "old-fashioned," in her own time she was much admired as a woman and a wife.
When she became level seven, her father, the old king Ashwapati, suggested she marry, as was the custom.
He was, in truth, a little concerned that his daughter had received no proposals, for she was a quiet Shoyru who preferred to read and study her devotions than go out dancing. First let me travel for a year, and maybe I will find the Shoyru that is perfect for me.
But perhaps these matters are best left to destiny. If I am to be married, destiny will find me a husband. Savitri wandered for a year, meeting with important Shoyrus up and down the coast of Neopia. She even spent a few months searching the Mystery Island. She ate the simplest of foods and slept under the stars.
To meet her, none would have guessed that she was a princess, for she had left the fineries of the palace far, far behind her. Eventually her travels brought her to a forest, where she chanced to see a rainbow-colored Shoyru carrying an ax in one hand and a bundle of firewood in the other.
At first she thought him nothing more than a hunter or a forester, but there was something about him--the nobility of his bearing made her think again. Despite the roughness of his clothes and the meanness of his occupation, she could not help but wonder if he, like herself, was royally born, and, out of sheer curiosity or, at least she hoped was out of sheer curiosityshe asked him to tell her about himself.
My father was a king, but in his old age he lost his sight. Then his courtiers were able to conspire against him, and I was not old enough to defend him because I had no abilities then. He was overthrown and banished. Now we live in poverty in a small cottage in the forest.
I am taking him this wood now. I wish I could bring him something that would comfort him more!
For the Light Uber-Faerie, who saw everything and therefore knew everything, was at the palace when Savitri announced her news. One year from now, you will not be a wife, but a widow. Satyavan has only twelve months to live. And she insisted on going ahead with the marriage. And so the wedding was proclaimed.
A sacred fire was lit and hand in hand they walked around it seven times while the Faerie Queen chanted the ancient marriage prayer. Then she put away all her jewels and fine clothes and went to live in the forest as the devoted wife of Satyavan and the dutiful daughter of his parents.
Never once did she tell her husband what the Light Uber-Faerie had foreseen, but not for a moment could she forget it. If Satyavan had an appointment with the Dark Uber-Faerie, so be it. Nothing could come between the two of them. For it is often said in Neopia that the Dark Faerie, who is also the Faerie of death, is the only faerie who never breaks her word, and that is something absolutely certain.
For this same reason, the Dark Uber-Faerie is also known as the Faerie of truth and faith. And after twelve months, the Dark Uber-Faerie came.The Dark Room, a novel written by alphabetnyc.comn, is a tale set in the fictitious town of Malgudi.
