Once again, they left at dawn, facing bouts of rain and wind as they set out. Along the way, they came across many smaller padayatras walking from various towns towards Shirdi, carrying symbols of Sai Baba. Walking through quiet farmlands, the walkers reached Musalgaon at around 11.00 am. At Musalgaon, locals greeted Sri M on arrival. Another short day for the walk; they spent the rest of the day at leisure, as there was no Satsang in the evening.
