This city was a holy place for the followers of Sai Baba of Shirdi. In the heart of the city, there was a big temple dedicated to him. I heard It was one of the richest religious foundations in this country. And the area around it was crowded with pilgrims. Many auto rickshaws were parked along the wide road in front of the temple.
The moon-faced man in the photo was one of the drivers. He was waiting for customers coming while he was chatting with his fellow worker. Sai Baba of Shirdi did to not only show the path to salvation but also saved people from losing his job. His religious group seemed to spur the creation of many jobs.
