No Bathing for Boys??

13 May 2009

If ever there was an argument for why Pardada Pardadi should teach the importance of equality among all people, regardless of gender (or race or caste or socio-economic level), it's this guy:

This 63-year-old man, Kalau, has opted out of bathing for 35 years, some say because “A seer once told Kalau that if he does not take a bath, he’ll be blessed with a son,”

His poor seven daughters have to live with a man who only takes 'fire baths', which involve lighting a bonfire, smoking marijuna and standing on a leg praying to Lord Shiva.

If only Kalau knew that he was already blessed to have seven daughers and didn't need to stink out the world to get a son.
