Red And White

No need to wear
Coarse white clothes,
No need to shave heads,
No need to lead
An austere life.
The ancient Gopinath
Mandir in Vrindaban
Is opened its door,
Come please and
Celebrate Holi.
Decorate your own life
With colours and flowers.
So long as life is there,
Love is there, enjoy it.

Widows are welcomed to celebrate Holi in Vrindavan with colours. Very good step taken by the NGO Sulabh International. This festivity was organized to bring the widows into mainstream society. fine initiative really.
