Two decades of raised hand!

righthand4-hath khada“Life is just one, long high-five: Hindu holy man Baba Hath Khada” last seen at the Ardh Kumbh mela in Allahabad, India “has kept one arm raised over his head for nearly two decades. Why we don’t know.”

Well, keeping your hand above your head for an hour might be difficult for most of us but this hermit is keeping his hand like this for about a couple of decades.

The fingers look so weird… may be it is because of uncut and curled nails.

I wonder, how he can do everything with a single hand when workable hand is hanging above his head all the time. I don’t know what he gets by doing all this (except a photo feature and articles like this)!

Don’t you think it would have been better if he donated his hand to those who don’t have one and desperately need ! (AP photo in flickr)

    You… you can’t transplant a hand buddy. Nice thought though.
