British army troops shelter from the dust storm as their chinook helicopter departs from Cher-E-Anjir town in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

An Indian widow lies on a patio floor covered in flower petals and colored powder as she celebrates Holi or 'festival of colors' at the Meera Sahabhagini Mahila Ashray Sadam widows Ashram in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh, India.
The widows of this and other ashrams in this northern town are sponsored by the NGO, Sulabh International which funds most of their needs. Shunned from society when their husbands die, not for religious reasons, but because of tradition, many Indian widows have been ostracised from society and no longer live with their families and are forced to beg for food. Almost 2,000 of the estimated 34 million widows currently living in India live in Vrindavan and benefit from the welfare extended by the NGO.
