Sabitri Osha - ସାବିତ୍ରୀ ଓଷା

Sabitri Brata or Savitri Vrata (Odiaସାବିତ୍ରୀ ଓଷା or ସାବିତ୍ରୀ ବ୍ରତ) is a fasting day observed by married Hindu Odia and Maithil women of Nepalese Mithila and India on the Amavasya, the no moon day in the Bikram Sambat month of Jestha. It is also known as Sabitri Uwaans in Western Odisha region.

Married Hindu women whose husbands are alive observe it as a vow with great dedication and pray for their husband to have a long life. The word reflects the origin and significance of the Vat-Sabitri puja. The fast is dedicated to Sabitri, who saved her husband Satyabana from being taken by Yamaraj, the death god.
