During 3 years I worked about the plight of ostracised Indian widows. This is the incredible story of social reformer Bindeshwar Pathak bringing happiness into the lives of Indian widows, a story from despair to hope. A book, Angels of Ghost Street, has been published by Edition Lammerhuber.

Indian Widow
In the world, 115 million widows live in poverty. Some 40 million of the world's widows live in India. Many of them suffer inequities and atrocities. One can easily recognize widows when they venture out onto the streets, begging and looking for some food, hidden behind white veils and a posture more self-effacing than discreet. It is even more likely to see them in the narrow lanes, skulking, sliding along the walls like shadows, so as not to show themselves or be seen, because they bring misfortune: they could not keep their husbands alive. They are like black cats! A chance encounter in the morning brings bad luck.
