After decades Vrindavan widows celebrate Diwali…

After decades Vrindavan widows celebrate Diwali…
There was a new light in Meera Sahabhagni Ashram, a century-old widow shelter in Vrindavan. The women living there celebrated Diwali for the first time after living for decades in the ashram. Known as the City of Widows for the sheer number of women who find shelter there after being shunned by their families. They have been traditionally forbidden from doing a lot of things, including celebrating festivals. Earlier this year, nearly 800 widows of Vrindavan, where Lord Krishna is believed to have grown up, played Holi with flowers for the first time. It symbolised a break from tradition which forbids a widow to sport colours. Dressed in traditional sarees, these women made rangoli near the ashram temple at noon, went for shopping in the afternoon and then celebrated with firecrackers in the evening.
