World’s smelliest man: Iranian defeats Indian
January 20, 2014, 4:03 pm

He loves rotten meat, especially porcupine and fills his smoking pipe with animal excreta instead of tobacco!

Living in a remote village of Dejgah in southern Iran, Amou Haji, 80, has another unique feat to his credit.

He has not bathed for the last 60 years and hates water, said a report in the Tehran Times.

This no-bath decision has actually put him ahead of Guru Kailash Singh, 69, from the holy city of Varanasi in India who refused to bathe since 1974 just after he got married.

Singh, who spends all day working on the banks of the river Ganges, claimed a priest guaranteed he would have a son if he stops bathing.

The prediction failed. Singh has seven daughters.

His wife even threatened to stop sleeping with him if he didn’t bath. She gave in later, insisting she should be loyal to him.

Like Singh, Haji — who drinks five litres of water daily from a rusty oil can — feels that cleanliness would make him sick.

When Haji needs a haircut, he burns his hair and keeps himself warm with an old war helmet, said the report. Haji has reportedly chosen this lifestyle after some emotional setbacks he faced earlier in life.
