Widows from Vrindavan would tie rakhi on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s wrist in Delhi tomorrow on the occasion of Rakshabandhan that celebrates the brother-sister bond. A special programme was organised at the five-century-old Gopinath temple in Vrindavan, where rakhis were packed in beautifully decorated baskets carrying sweets. Widows living in Vrindavan’s ‘Meera Sahabhinini’ ashram made a major contribution in the making of these scared threads. The programme was organized by Sulabh International, a non-governmental organization, taking care of 1,000 widows of Vrindavan, Varanasi and Uttarakhand since 2012.

A team of these women and social workers will be leaving for Delhi today.”
