Madhuban Hotel ~ A point
Mr. Hara left to the hotel 34km away in the front side of the course with baggages. Then I started to walk today’s course. The condition of Mr. Hara is unstable. Probably, I have to walk alone today.
At 7:40 in the morning, girl students are getting on the bus.
Middle school boys wave to me.
I could see the new town far away.
I ate bread and mashed potatoes for breakfast.
An old man treated me with kindness. I took a picture with him.
Indian cattle seem to be meditation master.
They are going to rest in peace for a full day.
Members of Indian Tata Group showed curiosity.
I was passing by a college at the time when collegians were going back to home from school.
When they heard about my explanation of pilgrimage, they showed curiosity with sparkling eyes.
Holding the large map, they shouted, “Fighting!”
The countryside was at leisure after second harvest.
Village women were enjoying conversation while they were sewing.
They waved to a traveler like me. This kind of interest is the capital of lonely pilgrimage.
Now I could see the mountains far away.
I felt like taking a nap when I saw this bed.
I was passing by an elementary school.
Children flocked to a strange pilgrim, and the guard locked the door.
Holding the door, however, the kids are shouting.
I handed out a few leaflets and explained about the map. They shouted and waved to me.
I took a self-camera picture.
One of the boys followed me for a while, and waved to me for send-off.
In Indian plain, it is not frequent to meet this kind of mountain.
I will take a close look at the mountain tomorrow.
This is a Muslim village.
In a country which maintain caste system. the people in the lower caste tend to accept Islam or Buddhism.
Islam seems to be more active in missionary work.
In addition, Islam adopted 0% interest rate for the loan.
For this reason, Islam is spreading rapidly in India which supported Hinduism for a long time.
Muslim boys shouted at me too. I handed out leaflets and explained about pilgrimage.
And I took a self-camera picture with the boys.
I walked long course for two consecutive days. But I was not tired at all.
