In the early morning, a constant pitter-patter drizzle and gentle breeze accompanied them as they walked. Once the rains had completed their stint, having caught a few of them without their protective gear, the weather turned particularly beautiful. Dark blue and white clouds lay low in the sapphire blue sky, as a soothing breeze blew while they walked. Since the walkers are just a day away from Shirdi, there are now a large number of people joining over from all over the country. Today, there were about 300 people in the group as it walked along the rain-swept green pastures all the way. They reached Nirmal Pimpri by 10.30 a.m. and soon reached their resting place where they relaxed after lunch. One more district in Maharashtra to go and just over two weeks to enter the state of Gujarat!
