The dynamic sky favored pilgrims for the fourth consecutive day. It did not dare to drench pilgrims who were already drenched in a mix of emotions originating from the departure of a dear daughter.
On Wednesday, devotees gathered again in Nauti for a glimpse of dhayani (Nanda Devi), the out-married daughter, or for joining her journey to her man’s house. Around 11:00 am, the journey began for Kanswa.
The short trail of just ten kilometers, which can be easily measured in 3-4 hours depending on individual speed, appeared long. The pilgrims reached Kanswa around 7:00 pm walking through various villages from where parasol carriers and devotees joined her entourage.
