She directs her gaze straight ahead of her, with all the confidence of the eldest bahuraani (daughter-in-law) in the absence of her mother-in-law. She is probably blessed with the love of more than one son in addition to her husband’s. In this

She fulfills a purpose that is beyond the scope of the entire Hindu deva pantheon, Mahishasuravadha, or the slaying (‘vadha’) of the buffalo-demon (Mahishasura). She is as strong as She is beautiful, as invincible as She is fair, as omnipotent as She is nariroopa (
