For a week, I visited the Sri Bagwan Bhajan Ashram in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh. The place is very well known being the birthplace of Lord Krishna. Many pilgrims from the world over come to visit this place and nowadays the Ashram is on the touristic tour. Pilgrims do visit this Ashram where over 2000 widows are being helped. To be helped though they need to pray. They get a token every time they attend the prayer room to sing Bhajan Kritan, giving them the right to a free meal..
