The padayatra is now moving in a sparsely populated area. They do come across a few houses and shops every hour or so. Every now and then, they see a farm with a small hut and a few farm animals. But mostly, these lands cannot be cultivated because of the hilly terrain. As they walk on the narrow two-lane highway, they are consistently accompanied by rain—now a drizzle, later a shower, then a rainstorm. When the rain is particularly heavy, the padayatra coalesces into a large blue blob - wearing raincoats and moving against the wind. Sometimes, there is just a cool breeze and these are the best. Sri M walked ahead, energetic and lively while the rest struggled to catch up with him! The lands are flush with unsullied green—there is new life everywhere and the old life thrives too. The only thing that connects this ancient, natural world to the outer world is the black road and the automobiles that move on it.The walk today proved to be a delight for connoisseurs of nature and its evergreen features and will be so for the next few days.
