The weather has turned sizzling again and the sun beats down mercilessly. This time around, it is not only hot but also sultry and the going is difficult. The upkeep is even more difficult,as the yatris need to wash clothes more often than usual. This also means hunting for supplies every week or so. The rich Gujarati food is helping them walk in the heat. The walk in this region is indeed a study of incredible contrasts. There is a lot of material prosperity here, factory after factory of immense proportions are situated next to each other on either side of the highway. At the same time, the walkers see people in abject poverty, as they pass along homes made of few plastic sheets and wood poles with six or seven members living off a small piece of land. Today was also a short day.They spent the day at leisure after reaching their resting place, as there was no Satsang scheduled in the evening.
