Indian Hindu widows throw flowers as part of Holi celebrations organized by the NGO Sulabh at the Meera Sahbhagini Ashram in Vrindavan, India on March 27, 2013. The widows, many of whom at times have lived desperate lives in the streets of the temple town, celebrated the festival for the first time at the century old ashram. After their husband’s deaths the women have been banished by their families to the town where devotees believe Lord Krishna was born, for supposedly bringing bad luck.
