Nitin Sonowane walks 1200KM for peace

Inspired by Mahatma Ghandi’s principles; Nitin Sonawane (27) from Rashin Village in Maharashtra state in India has dedicated his life to spread peace across the world. He will be doing this through the peace walk. Sonawane will travel to 75 countries, where he will be spreading the message of peace, non-violence and harmony.

This engineering graduate worked for six months after the completion of his course as he knew from the beginning that his passion was not in the engineering field.

The soft spoken and peaceful being started his journey on November 18, 2016 from Bapu Kuti, Sevagram Ashram in Wardha where he cycled to Yavatmal, Washim, Buldhana, Jalna, Aurangabad, Ahmednagar, Pune and Mumbai.

He will be completing his journey on October 2, 2019 to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Ghandi.

Sonawane is now in South Africa, where he will start his 1200 peace walk from Johannesburg to the Mveso in Eastern Cape where Nelson Mandela was born.  He will stop at a few historic places on his way just to meet and greet the people. He will be joined by Yogesh Mathuria, Kanshin Ikeda, Jalandharnath Channole, Sangram Patil and Dilip Tambolker.

Sonawane said his journey is about finding the truth, he said he will travel for three years spreading love, peace and harmony. He said there is a lot of violence aimed at innocent people; however, he said peace is still attainable.

Sonawane pleaded with community members who might come across them walking to support them in any way possible.

Sonawane said he received help from people whom has come across him, and this simple gesture of humans explains that there is still scope for peace and harmony, which we all are looking for.
