Vivek Oberoi spent his Holi this year with the girls from his Devi initiative in Vrindavan. Devi, which stands for the development and empowerment of girls, is an initiative taken by the Yashodara Oberoi Foundation. The foundation gives little girls in particular a chance at education and provides them with nutrition and health care.


Vivek had a lot of fun with the girls. They recreated Holi the way Krishna used to play it, on the banks of the river Yamuna. He surprised the girls on their way home from school by picking them up in a bull cart. They were delighted to find that Vivek was the one driving it. He also told them Holi stories, and encouraged them to love one another.


Vivek's charity work with these underprivileged girls does not end here. He hopes one day to build a Pariyon Ka Mahal, a home for abandoned children. The children will be taken care of by abandoned mothers or women who have been abused and are in need of shelter and protection
