Marriage leads to the blending of two souls to form a single soul. The new soul which is formed after marriage resides in two bodies- the husband and the wife. If an unfortunate woman loses her husband after marriage, she is bound to face many struggles and challenges to survive in this harsh world.
According to Hindu mythology, a wife lives for her husband's happiness. According to ancient Indian traditions, the husband is considered as the biggest jewel of a woman's life. A wife is supposed to lead a life full of sacrifice after her husband's demise. The remix of ancient cultures and traditions in a modern society leads to healthy development of the society.
The sunlight is white in colour and is considered as the purest of all. The colour white gives positive energy to a widow to bravely face her life's challenges. This colour encourages a woman to seek god's blessings and recognise this world on a positive note. So, widows are always encouraged to wear white coloured clothes.
