The team came across this son & his mother from Kolhapur district who were on pilgrimage tour for about 3 months on foot. They have visited many temples & ashrams. I asked them " What about the expenses ? who takes care of the expenses"

The genuine answer was -- " Bhau, we do not have land so we worked on daily wages. The god is so kind ....... Now, we do not have a single rupee, but nothing has stopped us on this tour of pilgrimage. people give us food & we sleep in temples. We travel only on foot so no question of spending money ! We do not have any belongings so we are not afraid of thefts, our devotion on the god is the only asset what we have & no one can steal it from us "

I was absolutely speechless after this dialogue ! !
