A lot of people can’t imagine going through a day without taking at least one shower, but 66-year-old Kailash Singh, from India, hasn’t taken a bath in over 38 years, and says he’s happier than a lot of people who wash their bodies every day.
But what can possibly make a man give up the daily ritual of bathing? Kailash says he made the decision in 1974, shortly after he got married, hoping this would help him have a son. He claims it was priest who guaranteed him a prized son if he followed his advice not to wash or cut his hair. Now, over 38 years later, Kailash Singh is probably the world’s smelliest man, has 6-foot-long dirty dreadlocks and is father to seven daughters and not a single son. Despite having been failed by his religious guidance, the old man still doesn’t want to wash his body, and says only a son could change his mind. Although stranger things have happened, fathering a son at 66, with a 60-year-old wife is very unlikely.
If you thought Kailash Singh doesn’t care about personal hygiene, you were seriously mistaken. The Indian cattle farmer takes what he calls a “fire bath” each evening”, making sure he gets rid of all the sweat. No it doesn’t involve purifying his body with fire, but rather smoking marijuana, praying to the Hindu god Shiva and dancing around a bonfire (without breaking a sweat, I guess). He says that’s enough to kill off the worst smells, he says, but his family and neighbors disagree. The world’s smelliest man says they don’t understand it’s god’s decision, not his. He says that without a son, he will probably only wash again in the next life. Right now, he only uses water to wash his face and hands.
