Colorful Portrait From the Widow Holi

In most of India, millions of Hindu widows are expected to live out their days in quiet worship, dressed only in white. They are typically barred from all religious festivities because their very presence is considered inauspicious. Until recently, Indian widows were expected to follow the socio-cultural codes of a patriarchal Hindu society that demands a woman lead a life of asceticism after a husband's death. But slowly, widows are moving toward modernity.The holy city of Vrindavan, in Uttar Pradesh, is known as the City of Widows because it has given shelter to thousands of poor women. Their lives appear to be changing for the better, the widows are breaking age-old traditions by actively participating in Hindu festivals like Holi and Diwali. Here is a portraiture of a widow after playing Holi
