 Indian widows throw flowers during Holi celebrations, or the festival of colors, at an event organized by the NGO Sulabh at the Meera Sahbhagini Ashram in Vrindavan, India. The widows, many of whom at times have lived desperate lives in the streets of the temple town, celebrated Holi for the first time at the century old ashram. The women were banished by their families after their husband’s deaths to the town where devotees believe Lord Krishna was born, for supposedly bringing bad luck.

    Beautiful pic, but it made me sad. They were banished after their husbands died? Why do people hate women so much??
