Put your hands up for Amar!
He is Sadhu Amar Bharati , a holy man from India who has kept his right hand up for the past 41 years, since 1973. His arm is just a bone and skin, which he can’t move or use anymore.
After having a normal life with his wife and three children he decided to separate himself from the mortal ones.
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. But doing something like this doesn’t just mean giving up the functionality of an important body part, it also implies dealing with a lot of pain.
