An Indian man had to be rescued from a pit that he had voluntarily been buried in for 8 hours. The reason – he wanted to attain salvation and be reborn as a God. Let’s file this under crazy.
Deeraj Kharol, a tantrik who had been living in a temple in Karocho ka Kheda village, Rajasthan, for a few years, last week announced that he planned to bury himself alive as part of a bizarre ritual to attain ‘samadhi’ (salvation) and be resurrected as a God three days later.
There was only one problem, he almost killed himself. Can you believe that when police arrived to free the idiot they actually had to convince the village elders that the buried man would die of suffocation. We couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried.
