A traveling priest, lost in thought, while waiting to hitch a ride near the temple town of Srinagar, Uttarakhand, India
Riding out early morning from Rudraprayag, I crossed the Alaknanda river at Srinagar and halted at hamlet of Maletha for a quick breakfast.
Apart from the owner, there was a middle-aged baba at the place. Yearning for a conversation I sat down at the same table with babaji and started chatting. Babaji was waiting for the bus. I was surprised to find the babaji quite well-traveled across India, from the temples of south to a few in the far north-east, mostly on train, bus and a good distance by foot.
The solo traveling by foot intrigued me. Carrying a small bundle of clothes and little other possessions, he relied of food donation to get along.
