On a day, devoid of much excitement and action, the highlight was a visit to Maharshi Dayanand Memorial Center. Maharshi Dayanand, also called Dayanand Saraswati, has been hailed as one of the makers of modern India by no less a person than President S Radhakrishnan.

It was a pleasant coincidence that Swami's birthday falls the next day and they got to visit the centre in his name a day in advance. The Swami, with his profound scholarship in Sanskrit and Vedas, fought the superstitions and malpractices which had crept into Hinduism. Arya Samaj was the Hindu reform movement founded by him, based on the Vedic tradition. He was the first to call for 'Swaraj', which was later taken up by Bal Gangadhar Tilak. His work Satyarth Prakash influenced the freedom movement. Many of his disciples played significant roles in India's fight for independence. Swami Dayanand's life was depicted in pictures inside a circular hall which was meant for meetings, satsangs and havans. The yatris had breakfast at the Centre before moving ahead with the walk.
