Picture of the Week #41

Mr. Gogawale ("mountain man") baba resting on Mt. Kamalgad.  He is the care-taker of a temple on this mountain and earns his living by playing host to trekkers.  He also acts as a guide.  The 81-year old gentleman has the stamina of an 18-year old!

Mr. Gogawale held a Masters degree and had spent a majority of his life in the mountains.  His love and passion for nature was awesome!  His biggest fear was the densely forested plateau of Koleshwar becoming "New Mahabaleshwar".
