Manu sanhita...yup most of the Bhartiy samaj still follow this.But As per ved there is no such sahinta or any restrictions for woman.I have some books articles when samaj sudharana started around end of the 18th century.Age of Ram mohan roy,Justice ranade,Jyotiba phule ,Robindranath tagor all these people argue about parampara like sati,keshawapan not really included in our ved puran.It came latter.
but this parampara's are very strong even today's highly educated woman follows.you know guys I have read in one book that even our Jhansi ki rani is not a exceptional case.due to British govt pressure she not able to do kashvapan which was pratha in Marathi Brahman samaj, for that she used to take prayachita every day. doing some puja,archana daan,some pathan . and one of the major reason to stood against Britisher is interference in this parampara.
Even Adi shakti also faced same problem take example of Paravati...Mahishasur,Jalander (husband of Vrinda) wants to marry Paravati.so even Adi shakati also suffer so ham jaisi normal girls to jane do.moral of the story Adi shakti jaisi usaka khatama khud karana chahiye.
