Amid blowing of conch shells and showering of flower petals and dry colour powders, these widows participated in the Holi celebrations at the ancient Gopinath temple, dedicated to Lord Krishna. They were joined by widows from Varanasi vlog.
The event was full of happiness and excitement as they smeared each other with Holi colours. This this was for the first time they played Holi inside a temple in this holy town. A number of Sanskrit students and scholars too joined in the Holi revelry with the widows who has been cast away by their families and are living in the temple town for several decades. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
