In many areas of the subcontinent, widows still suffer abuse and humiliation. Considered pariahs by patriarchal Indian society, they are stigmatized by prejudices and superstitions. Mistreated and forced from home, many widows seek shelter in the holy city of Vrindavan, on the banks of Yamuna River, where Lord Krishna is believed to have spent his childhood, and where today thousands of neglected women live in the ashrams run by the government. They pray and wait to die. • In 2013, for the first time since the death of their husbands sentenced them to a life of solitude and exclusion, the widows of Vrindavan sprinkled flowers and colors, escaping for a day the endless routine of their lonesome lives. Sulabh International, an NGO that took over five ashrams with the aim of improving the living conditions of these women, fulfilled a wish they made: to play Holi once again. A small symbolic gesture, yet a groundbreaking move against tradition. • Here, widows dressed to celebrate Holi inside the Ashram. • • Photography by Andrea de Franciscis, @andreadefranciscis, 2014. • • #Hinduism #color #vrindavan #krishna #widows #celebration #community #tradition #groundbreaking #abused #women #dance #death #life #symbolic #culture #smiles #Fridayvibes #Fridaymood #TGIF #makeportraits #bliss #womanhood #sisterhood #selfcare #queens #beauty #photojournalism #photooftheday #Narratively

The venue holds up to 100 people so we are planning for a massive celebration of yoga, consciousness, uplifting vibrations and Phish - a true coming together of community in sacred gathering. The class coincides with Phish 2-night run at the Pepsi Arena in downtown Albany, prior to the 2nd night. Please pass this on to your friends who will be in town. Part of the proceeds go to the Waterwheel Foundation. ☆ Access the pharmaceutical laboratory in your brain as we practice the technology of ecstasy in this invigorating and phun, vinyasa-based practice to the choicest selection of live Phish tunes. When sacred movement, jammin’ music, elevated intention, and connection to the spirit through breath comes together in ceremony and celebration, the potential exists to step into the groove – a timeless state beyond the confines of conditioned mind, where a vast, ecstatic field of infinite possibility awaits. ☆ • • • #phish #phishtour #phishfalltour #phishfromtheroad #phishlove #yoga #yogisofig #newearth #goldenage #yogaeverydamnday #albany #518 #consciousness #highvibe #awakening #kundalini #phishlot #soul #planet #bliss #free #sacred #medicine #gathering #spirit #tribe #phamily

#final_sk #assignment #onlinetask Completed an online task of retouching/processing a picture taken by @surbhikaushik . . Apart from the task in hand, I would like to express a few words. All along the time I was retouching the image, I was so amazed by the composition and perspective of the picture. The picture itself is a bliss to eyes. I doubt it requires much of the retouching. Still the way I've done, I hope to do justice to the sanctity and standard of the capture. Thank you @surbhikaushik for the opportunity. #bliss #evening #sunset #colours #gradient #orange #blue #sky #clouds #water #lake #waterscape #flowers #green #photoshop #editing #traveldiary #travelgram #travel #travelblog #photoblog #blog #incredible #adobe #mood #instagram
A day of bliss at @qcterme in Turin - 4 floors of pools, jets, saunas and themed rest rooms with a 5* hotel worthy outside bit - was already amazing without the massage and lunch with unlimited wine (spot the Brits Abroad) #spa #massage #bliss #torino
