People from different villages and cities often visit Sakal in his house to take his pictures. As a sign of respect, many villagers call him ‘Mahatma Ji’.
We’ve all felt guilty about not washing our hair from time time. Hygiene is something that people of all age groups should pay close attention to. However, a man from Bihar’s Munger district has changed the very meaning of ‘poor hygiene’ by keeping his hair unwashed for 40 years.
Watch Him And His Long Hair;
Sakal Dev Tuddu has allowed his hair to grow six-feet long since 1979. He proudly wears it like a turban and says it wove itself into a dreadlock that is a ‘blessing from God’.
Sakal says he did not wash his hair and also abstained from drinking and smoking because God told him to do so. To maintain his dreadlocks which are long enough to trail on the floor, he ties it in a white cloth whenever he steps out of his house.
The 63-year-old currently lives with his wife, Rupiya Devi, his three sons, three daughters and seven grandchildren, who were baffled by his long hair when they were young. But the family members have now adjusted with his distinctive feature.
Apart from local attention, people from different villages and cities often visit Sakal in his house to take his pictures. As a sign of respect, many villagers call him ‘Mahatma Ji’.
On the professional front, Sakal is known as a healer who prepares homemade treatments and medicines for childless couples. Previously, he worked for the forest department of Bihar for 31 years.
The record for the world’s longest dreadlocks is currently held by Asha Mandela of Florida, USA. Her hair measured an incredible 110 feet when she was 55 years old.
But Sakal is not the only Indian who is famous for his long hair.
Last year, a 16-year-old Gujarati girl entered the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest hair as a teenager.
Nilanshi Patel’s hair measured 5-foot, 7-inches and she hasn’t had a haircut since the age of six.
“When I got my hair cut, a really bad haircut. So, then I decided that I won’t cut my hair. I decided that when I was six and have not cut it since,” Nilanshi told Guinness World Records in an interview.
