Mumbai: The Maharashtra State Commission for Women’s (MSCW) drive for women’s empowerment during the ongoing 21-day long Ashadhi Ekadashi Wari (pilgrimage) has earned a pat from none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In a letter to the MSCW Chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar, Narendra Modi said it was heartening to learn of the ‘Wari Nari Shakti’ initiatives, which are the need of the hour for modern day society. The 21-day colourful pilgrimage commences in late June, with over a million devotees marching on foot from different parts of the state, notably Dehu and Alandi, warmly welcomed by villagers all along the approximately 250-lms long routes. En route, the devotees, sporting holy basil beads, sing the glory of Lord Vithoba and other saints, and the march finally culminates at Pandharpur, Solapur. (IANS)
