DRAUPADI

Hindu Fire Goddess

Also known as Draupathi

Hindu Fire Goddess

She is the wife of all five of the Pandavas brothers. Her story in the Mahabharata is very popular, full of drama, romance, intrigue, nudity, wagers, arguments — and more nudity.

She was last spotted in Fiji of all places, where she was presiding over the fire-walking ceremonies.

The water for pouring on the red-hot coals had been specially imported from the Ganges.
