The news report “All help to Vrindavan widows” (Oct. 9) makes fascinating read. Close on the heels of the promoters of an organisation helping them travel to West Bengal, the follow-up gesture by the West Bengal Chief Minister offering all assistance to rehabilitate them is praiseworthy. At the time when widows are treated in an inhuman way by society, steps like these will go a long way in ushering in social change.

How one wishes other State governments took the cue from West Bengal.
