Overview

Mokashi is a Marathi novelist of the post-independence generation of “Realists.” This is a vivid account of his day-by-day experience on the Warkari pilgrimage from Alandi to Pandharpur on foot.

Pilgrimage is one of the most visible and pervasive features of Hinduism. Every year the Warkaris carry palanquins, called palkhis, bearing sandals representing the feet of their saints from various towns to Pandharpur in Maharashtra—to the Temple of Vitoba.

Mokashi accompanied the oldest and most revered of the palanquin processions, the palkhi of Jnaneshwar Maharaj, on its two-week journey. His account is the only sustained view of the pilgrimage in any language.
