  Decapitation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Beheading typically refers to the act of intentional decapitation, e.g., as a means of murder or execution; it may be accomplished, for example, with an axe, sword, or knife, or by means of a guillotine.
Decapitation is invariably fatal, as brain death occurs within seconds to minutes without the support of the organism's body.
Decapitation by guillotine was a common, mechanized form of execution invented shortly before the French Revolution (although an earlier version of the guillotine, the gibbet, was used in Britain until the 17th century).

 Panjwani, Decapitation and Transposition of Heads  PIPA Volume 2 (1999)
In the three Sanskrit tales, the themes of decapitation and transposition of heads aim at resolving tensions, usually arising from a conflict between the erotic yearnings of individuals and the demands of the society.
The decapitation (which can also be seen as literally expressing the figurative concept of 'losing one's head') represents a metaphysical explanation of the split between the body and soul, and the subsequent transposition of heads symbolizes the resolution of the conflict and hence the recovery of social order and human happiness (Figueira 161).
Through the decapitation and transposition of the husband's and friend's heads, the wife gets the best of both the men and her erotic yearning and social/moral conflict inherent in that yearning are resolved (her desire for the perfect husband is fulfilled).
