Dhumavati-Representation

“Dhumavati—her name means “the smoky one”—is also called “the widow.” In traditional India, especially in the higher castes, there was no “more inauspicious form of the feminine. In a culture where status for women is given by the husband, widowhood is the worst thing that can happen to a woman.” From “Awakening Shakti” by Sally Kempton
