BEHULA- and the snake goddess manosha

Behula is the heroine in the Manasamangal genre of Bengal medieval epics. According to the Manasavijay (late 15th century). Behula got married with Lakhindar. Lakhindar's father, Chand Sadgar, angered Manasa, who caused Lakhindar to be bitten by a snake on his wedding night, though he and Behula were enclosed in an iron made house. Behula sailed alone with her husband's dead body on a boat leaving all her fear behind and finally appeased the goddess and brought Lakhindar back to life.

KHONA- the queen of astrology

Khona (Bengali: pron. khawnaa) was an Indian poetess and legendary astrologist, who composed in medieval Bengali between the ninth and 12th centuries AD. Most likely, she lived her life in Bengal, but a number of legends have grown up around her life. According to one legend, she was born in Sri Lanka and was married to the mathematician-astronomer Varahamihira. However, she exceeded him in the accuracy of her predictions, and at some point, either her husband or some others cut off her tongue to silence her prodigious talent.
am working on a book about her life.... starting with the cover-page
