Today was relatively a quiet affair, after several days of frenetic activity. This was the day the Haryana Phase 2 team took over from their Delhi counterparts. They quickly got into the act at the Highway Dreams Dhaba, serving delicious snacks, which included a yummy homemade cake!! Sri M did a couple of media interviews during the walk. We passed a statue of the valiant Maharana Pratap on our way and ended the walk for the day at Swami Vivekananda Statue.

Lunch was at the Sukhdev Dhaba. The padayatris were fooled by the name 'dhaba' and were expecting a decent looking Dhaba as their place of lunch. What awaited them was probably the biggest dining area they have encountered during the walk! In three dining rooms, they could easily accommodate hundreds of diners without any rush. The food counters and the washrooms were also maintained to perfection. The food served was also wholesome and tasty. Before lunch, the padayatris expressed their deep gratitude to the Delhi team, which on many occasions went out of their way to make the walk and accommodation most comfortable to all of them. As usual, the official 'handing over of the whistle' was next. The Haryana Phase 2 team 'blew the whistle' and another chapter of the Walk of hope began! With a 'five day break' to begin tomorrow, the padayatris were busy making plans. Some are off to Rishikesh to spend the Shivaratri there. Some are dashing off home for a couple of days with family. Some prefer to remain elusive lest they get troubled by others to take them along. The padayatris are entering their last stretch of the historic walk!
