Mangaluru, June 24, 2018: International Widows’ Day  was celebrated at Shree Gokarnanatheshwara Temple Kudroli on June 23, Saturday.

Addressing the gathering, Manorama  Bhat, Member of Karavali Lekhakiyara Vachakiyara Sangha said women enjoy much respect in the  society while also being the ones who  have to shoulder a great deal of responsibility.  A woman who lost her husband should never be called a widow by the society,  she said adding they should also not remove the Mangalasutra. "I have lost my husband but still I wear Kumkum on my forehead.  The society must never look down upon widows," she added.
