 “Palkhi” or “Wari” or “Dindi” is what we are getting to hear everywhere in and around Pune these days. The months of “Jyeshtha” and “Aashadh”(Hindu months) bring the celebration of the “Palkhi”(palanquin). The pilgrims involved in this Wari are known as “Warkaris”. The warkaris carry the Padukas (foot prints) of many Saints in this procession. Most famous Palkhi processions are of saints Dyaneshwar Maharaj and Tukaram Maharaj. Saint Tukaram Maharaj was devotee of Lord Vithoba (“Vitthal”).
