Savitri is not just a legend or a symbolic poem. Savitri and Satyavan are conscious and living forces. Savitri is the Divine Mother and Satyavan, the human soul. So Savitri and Satyavan is the story of man and his quest for Divine perfection. Satyavan, though in the midst of darkness and ignorance pursues light, knowledge and love. The speaker explains and summarises the whole Savitri and its relation to our everyday living.
