Description:

History is made not by warriors and kings, but by Simple women, wives and widows. Born in an unknown dhangar (shepherd) family in the late 1720's Ahilya became the daughter- in-law of Malharrao Holkar, the first Maratha Subhedar (Governor) of Malwa in Central India. Ahilya was in her twenties and a mother of two children when the sudden death of her husband Khanderao led her towards sati - the ritual burning on husband's funeral pyre. Malharrao prevented this tragedy and groomed her into handling administrative duties for the Holkar State - thus Ahilya overcame barriers of tradition with austerity and hard work to achieve venerable social status at a young age.
