Sources claim Amar Bharati felt disillusioned by all the fighting going on in the world, and decided to raise his right arm for peace.A respected Sadhu at the Kumbh Mela, in Haridwar, Amar has inspired other Sadhus to raise their arms for peace and harmony, and some of them have kept them raised for the last seven, thirteen, even 25 years.
