The man wore only beads and sandals.
The Magh Mela that began on January 2 in Allahabad will continue for the next 45 days and worshipers from all over the country will gather at the confluence of the Ganga, Yamuna and the Saraswati rivers on selected dates to offer their prayers. In this mela one can see some impressive feats or physical and mental strength and power performed by the holy men or sadhus as they are called in India. For example, a man with the name Radhey Shyam Prajapati holds the Guinness World records for standing motionless in the water for the longest time (8hrs:5mins:5secs) and Rajikumar Chakraborty holds the record for the longest static wall sit (11hrs:5mins). And now a sadhu has been photographed in the same Mela doing something that no one can imagine..
The sadhu was photographed pulling a truck with his penis. The man displayed an extraordinary stunt of strength when he pulled a truck with a rope tied around his penis.
Several people watched the astonishing sight as the sadhu, who was probably Hindu or Jain performed this unusual stunt.
The sadhu wore nothing but only a beads mala and had long gray beard. The painful ritual was a test of his spirituality.
However, this is not the first time when some holy man has performed such stunt. In 2014 a video surfaced on the internet that showed a holy man lifting a weight with his penis.
Around 2 lakh tourists and pilgrims from all over the country have arrived in Allahabad to attend the Magh Mela. The pilgrims will stay in makeshift houses for 45 days and take bath in the holy water on specified dates.
