The walk still has sizable numbers with as many as 400 walking today; the destination point was Mahiravani, a distance of 18 kilometers. The drizzle seems to be a constant companion these days. The road, the land and the air have a certain atmosphere of wetness. The earthly brown of pre-monsoon Maharashtra seems to have turned into a fresh ‘green’ look that is eminently pleasing to the eye. Nashik district is especially flush with green and as the group leaves the city, it seems to become more and more green. The center of the city seemed to have a more modern architecture unlike other cities where the centre hosts the old city and buildings tend to get more modern as they progress to the outskirts. Old houses, narrow cobblestone pathways and small water bodies seemed to be the order with people going about their regular lives as one left the boundaries of the ancient city. Sri M and the yatris stopped by the ashram and samadhi of Poojyashree Narayana Kaka Dekhne. Shri Narayan Kaka Dhekane Maharaj was a spiritual master who practiced the path of the Siddha Yoga and attained samadhi in 2012. The trustees of the Ashram felicitated Sri M and welcomed the padayatris. They had organized breakfast at the Ashram. After resting here for some time, the yatris walked on and reached Mahiravani around 11.30 am.
