Militat omnis amans. Militiae species amor est. (Ovid)
In his work entitled Amores, the Latin poet Ovid wrote, "Every lover is a soldier [and] love is a kind of warfare." This quote has always been one of my favorites, and I believe that it aptly encapsulates some of the major themes found in the love stories of Sita, Savitri, and Damayanti. For these three women are truly soldiers fighting for their epic loves. . .
