    One thing for sure, we human beings have mastered the art of killing....Satee definitely is creepy and the sad part is that even today it is being practiced in parts of Rajasthan with the blessing of the netas...

    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    They could make it seven in place of five if they knew about Parasi and eunuch systems of disposal of dead bodies in India.

    Yes, you know what I personally feel there is no harm in throwing the bodies at the mercy of elements and scavenger birds, because that is where they are originally derived from, the Tibetans and Parsis follow this philosophy of returning the dead back to the elements the bodies are taken from. But Satee, where a live woman is burnt is just horrible and too dehumanizing.

    Of these, I am aware of satee, which was abolished by British government on initiative of great social reformer Raja ram Mohan Roy. I also read about Parsee system of leaving dead bodies for eagles and other birds to feast on. Yet there is system of floating dead bodies of sage.

    Satee was originally committed by Rajput queens to save themselves from foreign invaders became common with other sections of society and later was forced on unwilling women with cruel means. But now it no more exists in any part of our country, barring a few exceptional cases, which is very much unwanted.

    Actually Satee is a custom that was practiced even long long before the Rajputs. In Mahabharata there is mention of Madri, the second wife Pand, Pandava's father going Satee upon Pandu's death. Whether Mahabharata really did happen or not is a matter of debate, but the mere fact that mentions of Satee are found in it, is enough to suffice that this was much older practice in India than we believe it to be.

    The Rajput women performed Johar, which means mass suicide. This differs from Sati in as much as the women kill themselves not with dead bodies of husbands but in fear of being captured by enemy troops. So Johar is performed even if husband may be alive.
    Sati is really very old. Sulochana, Meghnad's widow (Ramayana) also performed sati. Sati is not to prevent capture by enemy.

    Yes, I forgot it was mentioned in Ramayana too. Actually more than being captured by enemy, it was done with the purpose of saving the widows from loss of dignity and of humiliation by others. Without a husband, a woman was seen as a lowly soul for whom there was no dignity or prestige offered by others in society!

    Thanks everyone for letting me know the bad tradition dates back to Ramayana and Maybe even older times. But the best part is, it exists no longer so at least we are one evil lesser now. :)

    This is process of civilization. We continue the good traditions and discard the bad. We can proceed only on the principle that what we inherited from past contains good as well as bad traditions. we should neither blindly support nor blindly oppose our traditions.
