Agra: For thousands of widows residing in the five shelter homes run by the Sulabh International, this Holi will be a special one as a three-day program has been arranged for them in Vrindavan.

A unique initiative has been taken this time to bring widows from Varanasi for the three-day event starting on March 3 and concluding on the day of Holi- March 6, an official of the Sulabh International, Madan Jha told PTI in Agra.

"Holi will bring some colour to the lives of the Vrindavan widows," he added.
