In the picture above, a woman on her evening walk reads the Gita or Gitai, in Marathi, translated by Vinobha Bhave, carved on rocks, at the Gitai Mandir in Wardha. It was inaugurated in 1980 by Vinobha Bhave. In the background is the Vishwa Shanti Stupa or the World Peace Stupa. She was probably a first time visitor like my friend in the picture below. They seem to be the ones who read a page or two lines up around the park. The regulars come here for peace and quiet. They come here to meet friends, gossip, relax and to exercise.
