The boy had left home to live a life of Sannyasi in January, 2008. He walked bare feet, just two pieces of Dhooti on his body. It's cold enough but not as strong as the boy's determination. He had been travelling through Gaya, Allahabad and then finally on a Train journey from Allahabad to Mumbai via Khandwah. 

“Don’t cry, Your Guru has made you leave home and you will meet him at Omkareshwar Temple around 3 pm on 30th January and a new world will soon be opened in front of your eyes"; An old sadhu consoled him.

The street dogs were shouting. He was lieing down at road side almost empty stomach since few days. It was a cold night under open sky at the banks of Narmada River. He waked up and waiting for the sun shine. He was expecting to meet his guruji.
