BANGALORE, INDIA, March 19, 2001: Fifty-seven-year old Colonel S.S. Rajan set on a "padayatra" or foot journey, to cover a distance of 16,000 km in order to spread the message of peace, and to retrace the hallowed footsteps of Adi Shankara, as part of the spiritual renaissance. "Walking has its own challenges," says the retired additional chief engineer of the Army. "This is my tapasya (spiritual austerity)," he said. In a span of two-and-a-half years he will be visiting 180 places including sites in Pakistan and Bangladesh. "The aim is to promote unity in every corner of the sub-continent," he said.
