After that let us rub our souls with the sea salt of Dandi.

    Very interesting poem, Hardik. Had never heard of this history before, today.
    Please explain to me what an Ashram is, I do not know. It's amazing how
    little I know of your India, please enlighten me more with your knowledge
    through poetry. I enjoy your fascinating descriptions poetically written in
    a poem. Thank you very much for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
