Indian Holy Man Amar Bharati
Strange Places and Customs
Sadhu Amar Bharati is an Indian holy man who claims that he has had his right hand raised in the air since 1973. 38 years later, his hand is just a useless piece of skin and bone with thick and twisted nails. 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.
