Thousands to Walk in Prayer & Protest Good Friday, also called Holy Friday or Great Friday, is the Friday preceding Easter Sunday. It commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ at Calvary.
I have been walking this path with the Christians since many years but for last two years I walked bare feet and this year too..I did it to show my solidarity with their pain and their spirituality.
And it is the Catholic kids who encourage me this is dedicated to those young souls without their love affection and they consider me one of their own my barefeet walk would not have been possible shooting pictures too, they allowed me to rest and sit on the main van where the 14 Stations were held in different surroundings....a 7 km walk.. people walked barefeet like me including a Sikh boy Manjit and many others reciting rosary.
