An Indian Goddess, She was borne from the earth. She choose Rama as her husband. Forced to discrimination, first she was asked to walk on fire to prove her purity, where it would destroy the impure and sinful, but not touch the pure and innocent. Then then she was left in a forest when she was pregnant with her two sons. When they were borne, Her husband came to receive them, thus freeing her of all responsibilities. She went back into earth by jumping in a fissure (a metaphor for suicide).
