Sakal Dev Tuddu
Sakal Dev Tuddu, a resident of Mandada village, in Japanese India’s Bihar state, claims he has been rising his hair lengthy since he was 22. For some purpose, he didn’t lower his hair for a complete 12 months, and when he awoke at some point he seen his locks had turn out to be tangled right into a ‘jatta’ (dreadlock).
He thought-about it a blessing from the Hindu god Shiva, so from that day on he by no means lower or washed his hair once more. In the present day, his spectacular jatta measures round 6 toes and reaches all the best way to the bottom and trails behind him. To maintain his hair from changing into even dirtier, Sakal retains it wrapped in a white material on prime of his head each time he goes out.
Ever since he began letting his hair develop, Sakal has turn out to be often known as ‘Mahatma Ji’ among the many individuals of Mandada, as an indication of deep respect. He’s believed to have therapeutic powers, and other people come to him from throughout India to strive his home-made natural treatments.
Sakal isn’t the primary Indian man to go viral for his extraordinarily lengthy hair. Three years in the past we wrote about Savjibhai Rathwa, a Gujarat man whose dreadlock measured a whopping 19 meters.
