As the first lady of the village, the people were surprised by how charismatic nature and kindness she has. She had earned the respect of the people so much and they loved her as well. But during, the ignorant and foolish tests of the her husband, this led to test her own mental state of heartbreaks because of her children and was put to shame by her husband.
