Amba was a princess in Hindu mythology, appearing in the epic Mahabharata. She was the daughter of the king of Kashi and was known for her beauty and grace. Amba was abducted and taken to the court of King Salva, who wanted to marry her. However, she had already fallen in love with another prince named Bhishma, one of the central characters in the Mahabharata. When she went to Bhishma to seek his help in freeing her, Bhishma refused to marry her as he had taken a vow of celibacy. Amba then went to King Salva and asked him to release her, but he refused and married her against her will.

Amba, who was determined to seek revenge, approached the great warrior Bhishma and challenged him to a one-on-one battle. Despite her valiant efforts, Bhishma refused to fight her as he considered her to be like a sister. Heartbroken and disillusioned, Amba eventually found solace in a divine being who promised to help her in her quest for revenge. She was reborn as the princess Shikhandi, who played a key role in the Kurukshetra War, by acting as a shield for the Pandava prince Arjuna and helping him defeat Bhishma in battle.
