Haridwar, June 25
Although Bathinda-based Rajendra Gupta has been to many religious places across the country on his bicycle, his enthusiasm and faith for visiting such places again and again is still the same.
At present in Haridwar, Gupta is now on his way to complete his ninth Amarnath Yatra on bicycle. He took a holy dip in the Ganga prior to commencing his journey in Jammu and Kashmir.
In 1989, he had visited the Gangotri shrine in Uttarakhand. And since then he has made it a point to visit other shrines on bicycle.
Gupta has visited Mata Vaishno Devi shrine in Jammu and Kashmir on the bicycle 70 times and Amarnath cave eight times. For the past 22 years, he has covered 3,78,000 km on bicycle. Now he plans to bring Kanwar of Ganga water from the Gangotri shrine during the Kanwar fair and visit the Mata Mansa Devi shrine in Haridwar. He has also visited Chamunda Devi and Chintpoorni shrines.
During the pilgrimage, he accepts whatever help local people extend to him. He also gives credit to his brother who has always supported him in this.
