The Iranian hermit Amou Haji was convinced, thanks to the villagers, to take a shower after 30 years. He ate beef, smoked a pipe full of animal excrement and several cigarettes at the same time
For more than half a century he hadn’t even taken a shower and refused to wash himself with soap and water thus earning the nickname “dirtiest man in the world”. Amou Haji, an Iranian hermit who believed that cleaning would make him ill, had however managed to reach the ripe old age of 94 when he died, this time “washed and clean”, after the villagers of Dejgah, in the province southern of Fars, they had convinced him to wash for the first time. The Guardian, which reports the news, tells of a man covered in soot who lived in a concrete shack. Who ate beef, smoked a pipe full of animal excrement and cigarettes, several din one at the same time, as shown in a photo published in 2014 by the Tehran Times.
After Haji’s death, the unofficial record of “dirtiest man in the world” could go to an Indian man that he hadn’t taken a bath for most of his life. In 2009 theHindustan Times reported that Kailash “Kalau” Singh, from a village outside the holy city of Varanasi, had not washed for more than 30 years in an effort to help put an end to “all the problems facing the nation”. A man who refused water in favor of a “fire bath”. “Every evening, when the villagers gather, Kalau … lights a bonfire, smokes marijuana and stands up on one leg praying to Lord Shiva,” the paper writes. «It’s just like using water for bathing – in fact Singh would have said -. The fire bath helps kill all germs and infections in the body ».
