The Colours of Liberation - 09 Joy

Ever since the horrendous practice of 'Sati' was banned in India over 250 years ago, Vrindavan has become host to Widows from all over the country. Shunned from society when their husband dies, not for religious reasons, but because of tradition - and because they're seen as a financial drain on their families - they pass their days in the Ashrams. Life in the Ashram's is a quiet existence, punctuated by the energy of festivals. Holi ushers vivid colours in their lives, in more ways than one.
