FOR THE last 35 years, Kailash Singh Kalau, 63, hasnt had a bath nor has he brushed his teeth. He says it is out of love for the country, but neighbours say it is for a son Kalau has seven daughters.
Agni Snan, or fire bath, is his way of keeping clean. Every evening as villagers gather, Kalau, who lives in Chatav, lights a bonfire, smokes marijuna and stands on a leg praying to Lord Shiva.
Its just like using water to take a bath, said Kalau, who wears two pullovers through the year and only drinks warm water. Fire bath helps kill all the germs and infections in the body.
Five years ago, when his brother died, Kalau refused to take the ritual dip in the Ganges.
I still dont remember how it all began. I just know that it started about 35 years ago, he told HT.
He used to own a grocery store but his unclean habits drove customers away. Now he makes a living out of farming.
Ill end this vow only when all problems confronting the nation end, he told HT. But the neighbours have a different take. A seer once told Kalau that if he does not take a bath, hell be blessed with a son, said Madhusudan Singh.
This is how Bill Maher bathes as well. Except that he prays to himself.
...and 35 years? How old *are* the daughters? Is he sure they are all his ;-)
A thread like this is worthless without a picture!
It's probably cleaner than "bathing" in that Ganges river sewer.
Ahhh! Now we're getting to the root of the matter.
Willie Nelson, is that you?
Maybe if he’d take a bath he might have a chance to make a son.
When Bill Maher wakes up every morning, he looks in the mirror and say, “God wishes he was Bill Maher!”
Oh, yea? Who's gonna get near him?
I thought I’d stumbled onto another Michael Moore thread...
No mention of wife or girlfriend, but they probably left him decades ago.
However...my hunch is that most folks don't enjoy getting downwind of him.Particularly in light of the fact that most parts of India are *very* hot and *very* humid.
"Every evening as villagers gather, Kalau, who lives in Chatav, lights a bonfire, smokes marijuna and stands on a leg praying to Lord Shiva."
Very funny and ol' Willie always looks like he needs a good bath. Willie is one of the few guys that I know of who can just step out of a good hot shower and still look like he needs a bath.
