Upset at Yamraj, Savitri decides to follow him, with assistance from Devi Maa Gayatri, all the way from Prithvilok, then to Devlok, then to Swarg, and it is finally at Brahmlok that she will be told that no mortal can enter this realm, and is asked to leave, but not before Yamraj agrees to grant her three wishes - none of these could be utilized to bring back her deceased husband. The question remains: what will Savitri wish for?
