The Quint: Vrindavan Widows Usher In Holi With Flowers, Colours & Songs

The widows of Vrindavan celebrated Holi in style this year. The festival of colour that celebrates Basant Ritu or the Spring season of the east was a festive occasion for these otherwise troubled souls. Up to just a few years ago this joyful celebration was forbidden for these Hindu widows abandoned by their families and living in Vrindavan (Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh). They would have been expected to live out their days in quiet worship, dressed only in white, with their very presence being considered inauspicious for all religious festivities.
