Joshua - He was Moses's assistant who took over water parting job along with rest from Moses. At Gibeaon, to win the battle he asked God to stop sun and moon to enable him to finish the battle in daylight. God yielded to his request?!.
Shilavati - Shilavathi's husband was a leper. He was playboy in his days and after being rejected by prostitute he came back to his wife and the wife still accepted him. Again one day he wanted to visit the slut who ditched him and the wife carried him on her shoulders. On his way to the cathouse, he fell into wrath of a sage Mandavya by mistake and the sage cursed the ugly guy to die before sun rise.
Shilavati used her power of fidelity and her loyality to her husband and cursed the sun not to rise. The sun didnt rise and all the gods made trip down to earth to convince her to let go off the sun. ??!!
Hindu mythology worships this lady also has one of Pativratas. A pativrata (Pati = husband, Vrata = devotion/devoted), is a virtuous woman, to whom the entire universe is her husband.
The equivalent for pathnivirata(Pathni-wife) doesnt exist in hindu mythology. The closest you get is only Lord Rama,the only one deity who had only one wife in only one of his 10 avatars.
These stories are forcefully injected into every Indian woman's blood atleast that is what every Indian man thinks. But my hubby may differ because he gets to see only my "kali" avatar, not any of the pativiratas anytime :)
Moral of the story: If you have exam tommorrow, you shouldturn off your tv, not ask NFL to stop playing their game.
