Walk of Hope had two short walks in Ludhiana – the largest Indian city North of Delhi – and the biggest in Punjab. Called the Manchester of India, it also has the notoriety as one of the most polluted cities in the world. Industrially advanced, it is home to bicycle, garment, machine tool and woollen units of various sizes. Well fed by Sutlej, wheat is grown extensively here.

The walk passed through crowded streets of old Ludhiana. One of the shopkeepers even treated the yatris to hot glasses of milk and fresh paneer. The walk terminated at a Gurudwara where Sri M spoke very briefly to introduce the walk and its objectives. Originally named after Sikandar Lodhi – the ruler of Delhi at that time – by his chieftains, it got corrupted to Ludhiana over the years. The padayatris were hoping to explore this modern and prosperous city during the next two days of rest.
