APTOPIX India Widows
Indian widows rest at an ashram in Vrindavan, India, Friday, Sept. 6, 2013. Widows in India are often shunned and do not remarry so they go to cities like Vrindavan, which are considered holy. Because they are not accepted into normal society, they congregate around India's holy centers, where they are able to scrape together a meager living and develop a sort of sisterhood with the other women.
