Somvati Amavasya 2014 - The Legend

In a village, there used to live a money lender with his wife and children. He had seven sons and one daughter. His all sons got married happily; however, his daughter remained unmarried. A saint used to visit their house regularly and bless all the seven daughter-in-laws. He never blessed the money lender’s daughter. One day, the girl told her mother about it, on which her mother asked the saint for the reason. But, the saint didn’t reply and went away.

Concerned for her daughter, the mother consulted a priest (Pandit) for the same and asked for a solution. The Pandit told her about a washerwoman who used to live on the island of Singhal. He further said that if that washerwoman applies vermilion (Sindoor) on the girl’s forehead, her fate will change. He also advised her to observe Somvati Amavasya Vrat.

The girl went to the island with her younger brother and started living with the washerwoman. After sometime, the washerwoman, being happy with her deeds, applied vermilion on the girl’s forehead. She observed Somvati Amavasya Vrat after reaching home. As a result, she got married and lived happily with her husband.
