Women's gesture for Phoolan

Orai (UP), July 28

To pray for peace to the soul of slain Samajwadi Party MP Phoolan Devi, about 500 women of her community will observe a fast and immerse "diyas" in the Betwa river here.

The women, belonging to the Nishad community from Gudha and Simiriya villages, will keep a fast on the last Monday of the month of "Shravan", according to the Hindu calendar and conduct the ceremony of "deepdaan".

The decision was taken at Gudha village today at a meeting presided over by village head Thakur Mahabali Singh Parihar.
