"An important event that occurs during journey is ‘Ringan’. Literal meaning is circle. In this event, the horse rider travelling in front, offers his prayers by coming back to the Palakhi – carrying Paduka, with Varkari singing on both sides of path." U see Ringan. This pic downloaded from the net, presented so you get an idea of Ringan. Esamskriti takes no credit nor does it have copyright for this pic. We thank the photographer for an excellent pic. U can see 2 horses in front part of pic.

Before this scene "This is a beautiful scene to watch when lakhs of Varkari prepare path for the horse rider within minutes and the horse reaches to the palakhi and returns within blink of eyes. When this starts all Varkari start singing Abhangs louder and everything starts getting the heavenly feeling." To see pics that captures this caption by Deepak Gaikwad see Click here

Varkaris waiting for Ringan to start. They also perform a tradition folk dance called FUGDI which energizes them.
