In the wee hours, Walk of Hope left the city of Anand; walking through the city to the outskirts for most of the morning, catching glimpses of people’s lives on the city roads. The urban poor have it tough!! The walk continued on NH-8, through the small village of Chikhodara and they walked a shorter distance of 16 kms today to Thakkar Wadi.

In Anand, a group of about 130 to 150 people welcomed Sri M and the padayatra. Some of them joined the walk for a few hours. They continued marching on the busy highway for rest of the day and reached Thakkar Wadi half an hour before noon. After halting at Thakkar Wadi, they visited a local temple where Sri M and the padayatris offered prayers before moving onwards to their resting spot. Sri M and Walk of Hope continues to receive recognition, support and appreciation from all sections of society as they walk. Every now and then, local community leaders meet Sri M, or they walk with them for a few hours, expressing their feelings about the padayatra, extending their friendship and support. Today, many community leaders joined Sri M and the walkers. Prominent among them were MLA, Sri Amit Chawda; President of Youth Congress, Sri Ketan Barot; Spokesperson of Gujarat Congress Samiti, Sri Kailash Kumar Gadhavi; ex-Central Minister, Sri Bharat Solanki; and Member of Parliament from Anand, Sri Dilip Patel. As each individual recognises and understands the message of Walk of Hope, the mission grows in strength and numbers. As Sri M says, it is not a just few people walking everyday but every person who understands what is being said also walks!
