What an Amazing show Oprah did on the "City of Widows"! I am so glad that so many more people are aware of the plight of the widows there! Her interview with Dr. Giri was intense and eye opening. The reality that these women chanting in the ashrams and begging on the streets is demeaning and the hope that one day the widows seeking shelter in Vrindavan will finally be treated with the dignity and respect they deserve is what drives me to continue the work with the White Rainbow Project. Won't you join us! Visit our website www.whiterainbowproject.org to learn how you can be a part of the change for these women! As Dr. Giri so eloquently stated in the interview, now that Oprah has shed light on this injustice positive change is sure to come soon!
This Blog is dedicated to improving the lives of widows and orphans in India. By using my films "White Rainbow"which sheds light on the horrible stigma that Indian widows face and "Ele, My Friend"which is a heartwarming children's film, I plan to raise funds, educate, motivate and inspire others to get involved and help!
