The purpled white

In Vrindavan (the place famous for the Hindu Avatar Krishna and his lover and companion Shreeradha ) , the Holi (festival of color) is celebrated in a grand way. Even the widows wearing white clothes in old age ashrams participate in the Holi with song and dance. The ashram widows changed to their traditional white clothes after Holi and bath and were about to have lunch while one in center was still in her white dress which was purpled from the color of Holi.
