Sati – self immolation became the norm in medieval India only because of the barbaric way the muslim invaders treated our womenfolk after their victory.  This was more evident in the Rajput society, as it was their women who lost their men in the battle.  Brahmin, merchants and shudras did not face the same level of widowhood and hence there is no strong tradition of widowhood in these castes.
