Sulabh promises to help widows of Brindavan
Brindavan (Uttar Pradesh), Aug 12 (IANS) Sulabh International has pledged to give a life a dignity to the 1,700 odd widows of Brindavan who spend their sunset years in pain.
Responding to the shock expressed by the Supreme Court over the inhuman disposal of the bodies of widows, Sulabh founder Bindeshwar Pathak announced steps to provide them a dignified life.
The apex court has taken a strong exception to the manner in which the bodies of some widows were disposed of -- by chopping them into pieces and stuffing them into gunny bags -- on grounds of resource crunch.
The court directed the Uttar Pradesh government to ensure that decent last rites were performed.
'We will take care of every need of the widows and orphans who roam the lanes of Brindavan and beg for food. Sulabh will provide food, clothing, proper healthcare and hygiene,' Pathak said.
Sulabh will also impart training and provide employment to able-bodied widows, he said.
