Lord shows the way

A Swarm of devotees from different parts of Maharashtra flock down to Pandharpur to worship Lord Vitthal. They travel hundreds of miles chanting folklores, singing songs, playing different native instruments and dancing all the way. I came across this man who was one of the lakhs walking towards the Vitthal Rukmini Mandir. An one eyed man with an infection in the other eye could barely see his way. But the trust and believe in Lord Vitthal made him strong enough to overcome all difficulties.
