Renovation at Sati Maa's Place :

Before Mr. Maganlal Shivshankar Vyas constructed flooring (otlo) around Satimaa's padya (tombstone) this information is mentioned by Mr. Vadilal M. Vyas in his made family tree.
In the above image Sati Maa - 1, around the Sati Maa Padya (tombstone) a flooring was constructed and surrounding it a wall was bulit by Mr. Trambaklal Vadilal Vyas during year 1960's.
Mr. Ghanshyam Balashankar Vyas renovated flooring (otlo) and wall around the Sati Maa's padya in the year 2002 which can be seen in above shown photo Sati Maa - 1.
In the year 2004 Dr. Arunkumar Trambaklal Vyas and his son Dr. Gaurav Arunkumar Vyas fitted Qota stones on the floor and wall at Sati Maa's place which can be seen in above shown photo Sati Maa - 2, 3 and 4.
In the year 2004 under the guidance of Mr Gopal Labhshankar Vyas, Dr. Gaurav Arunkumar Vyas added a Marble Stone on the front side of the surrounding wall. On the Marble Stone it was written "This pious place is of descendants of Idhar Vyas family who came from Chatral" (Chatral is in Kalol, Gandhinagar, Gujarat, Bharat / India).
The Padya (tombstone) of Sati Maa was in bad condition due to the weather and time factor to avoid any further damage Mr. Dilip Ramprasad Vyas in the year 2009 attached Quota stone on the bottom front side, back and side ways of Sati Maa's padya and the front part of Sati Maa which was severely damaged Plaster of Paris was applied on it to save it from any further damage this is shown in above photo Sati Maa - 3 and 4 (photograph was take on 6/9/2009).

In the above image Sati Maa - 5 and 6 we see total renovation which was done on 22 October 2021 by :


1. Mr. Rajendra Madhavprasad Vyas


2. Mr. Hiren Rajendra Vyas


3. Mr. Mitul Dilip Vyas


4. Mr. Ankit Ramesh Vyas


5. Mr. Himanshu Ramesh Vyas


6. Mr. Chintan Kirit Vyas

Here in calculation we have taken age difference from Mahashankar D. vyas till Vadilal M. Vyas of 20 years because during that old period people used to get married soon and from Trambaklal V. Vyas till Dr. Gaurav A. Vyas we have calculated age difference according to the birth date because from that period people used to get married late.


Vadilal M. Vyas had made a Family tree in which he had written that Dallaji Migrated to Lakhtar and from there he came to Wadhwan. The 3 children's of Dallaji namely Rupji, Mahashankar and Ramchandra in the year 1849 constructed their own houses in Wadhwan.

In Wadhwan city Vyas family ancestors had Agriculture farms.

At present the year is 2020 and hence we do following calculation :


Present year 2020


Mahashankar Approx. birth period 1834




2020 - 1834 = 186.


By this we can say that at present (2020 A.D.) the Vyas family Satimaa Pillar is Approx. 186 Years old.

Many people of our family have a question in their mind that why there is nothing written about Sati Maa on her pillar (padyo) the reason for that is that Mahashankar D. Vyas was born around 1834 and William Bentick banned Sati system in 1829 and Lalbai got Sati after 1829, if the Britishers came to know about this they would either break the pillar (padyo) so, to avoid this they must have not written any date or any information on the pillar (padyo).

Our Sati Maa's place is in Lakhtar near Wadhwan District. To reach the place one has to take the road near the lake and from there towards the station road which passes from near the government rest house. After going a bit further there are two roads one goes to station and the other one on the left goes to Vana village, going slightly further on the right hand side there is the Pillar of Sati Maa.

After getting married it is compulsory to go to Sati Maa place (Lakhtar) Immediately for opening of Cheda-chedi knot and after that only the couple can start marriage life.

At the time of Sons wedding 2 Coconuts and 1 meter Green Atlas cloth is to be taken from the Bride's parents and 1 Chunri and two Coconuts from the Groom's family are to be offered to Sati Maa.

At the time of performing the Puja the Pillar is to be washed with Cows Milk, and Water and then Sindoor is to be mixed in Ghee and applied on the Pillar and on that the decorative shining papers known as Chapa are to be sticked on the pillar.

The Chunri is put on Mata ji and even the Green Altas cloth is offered and afterwards given to any daughter or sister of the family. Afterwards Incense Sticks (Agarbatti) dhoop is given to the Pillar and the Arti is performed and the two Coconuts are broken and 5 pieces are kept in front of Sati Maa as Prasad offered, the pieces offered are kept there and not taken back.

Chunri / Veil and its color :


Chunri / Veil :


Chunri is veil and used to cover head. It is imporant to know how covering head started and its history.


To know about history of Veil Click here.


The chunri that we see on Sati Maa - 2 image is of red color and Atlas cloth offered to Sati Mass is of green color. Now the main question which comes to our mind is why green and red color?


For this first we need to know the history of Idhar Vyas family which is of Gautam Gotra.

Color of Chunri / Veil :


In ancient Mesopotamia primarily Green color represents Moon. Moon, joy and peace is represented by Goddess Nana which is a form of a conflation of Sumero-Babylonian Inanna-Ishtar.


Red color primarily represents God An (in Sumerian), later known as Anu or Ilu (in Akkadian), which is the supreme God and "prime mover in creation", embodied by the sky. He is the first and most distant ancestor, theologically conceived as the God of Heaven in its "transcendental obscurity".


Red color also represents Nergal who was associated with the Underworld and is usually the husband of Ereshkigal. He was also associated with forest fires (and identified with the fire-god, Gibil), fevers, plagues, and war. In myths, he causes destruction and devastation.


Conclusion of Chunri and its Color :


When we mix these two colors we get a understanding that Sati is a woman who did self immolation after her husband who became martyr in war.


Moon represents Nana which is a form of Inanna / Ishtar / eve. She is wife of Thor / Indra / adam.


Thor / Indra / Adam is the first King of Aryans. The Hand symbol on Tombstones represents that the Tombstones are of Aryans. The Right Hand on Tombstones shows sun-wise right-hand direction of the Aryan Solar-cult.

Sati Maa's Boon to our family :

Sati Maa has given blessings only for the "Daughter-in-law" of our Vyas family that any person of any caste or creed who is suffering from diseased of "Motijaro" i.e. disease of small shining Blisters can be cured by the daughter-in-law of the Vyas family. For this she has to bring water and fill her mouth with it and by uttering name "Jai Mataji" in her mind she has to sprinkle it on the effected part of the body here it has to be noted that the water can be taken in the mouth only one time and sprinkled on different parts and then say that go the disease will be cured.

At the time of treatment the diseased person or any other person of his/her family should keep complete silence. After that the diseased person has to feed a dog with one rotla. This way for 3 days either Sunday or on Tuesday such treatment is given regardless of any caste or creed. Mr. Trambaklal and many other persons of our Vyas family have seen this miracle happening.
