India Holi Festival Widows
An Indian man with his face painted in the colours of the Indian national flag is hit with flowers during Holi celebrations organized by the NGO Sulabh for widows at the Meera Sahbhagini Ashram in Vrindavan, India, Wednesday, March 27, 2013. The widows, many of whom at times have lived depserate 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. (AP Photo/Kevin Frayer)
