The padayatra covered a distance of 19 kilometers today and the great historical city of Pune is just a day away. The marks of a city are evident as they get closer. Towards the end of the day, they reached semi urban areas where the old and new come together. One can see farms and shepherds with many sheep on one side and towering glass structures on the other. As they entered the city, there were also lots of rural markets, with roads lined by many vendors selling all kinds of fruits. The people here are a mix of urbane and rural; sights include a lady carrying a pot of water on her head, walking on a modern road with an Audi car driving past. There was a touching incident as Sri M and the yatra walked past a fruit market. A lady didn’t know Sri M or about Walk of Hope offered a basket of fruits to him. The walkers reached MIT, Loni and relaxed for the rest of the day.

    This is a real life experience…
    I was in Chennai, a couple of months back and was in to a deep conversation with an enlightened soul, when he related a personal experience with Sri M. Having just finished the autobiography of Sri M, I did actively engage in the conversation. A couple of weeks later, I received from this person in Chennai, a carton by courier. On opening the same, to my pleasant surprise, was a set of 20 DVDs and audio CDs of Sri M.
    Here, in Dubai, any packet containing any form of CDs, is subject to customs inspection. In the case of the carton that I received, it reached me ‘unchecked’ by the customs! I shared this happening with the friend in Chennai. All that he had to say was, he felt a strong urge to send me the material and it was meant to reach me. Consequently, he was not surprised that it came unchecked, to me. It was meant to be so!! My deepest pranams to the Divine Sri M. If He wills, I would deem it a blessing to have his darshan..
