Earlier, I wrote about a man who has kept his arm raised for 38 years to please Shiva deity. I think I have just found his soulmate.
Kailash Singh, a 65 year old farmer, has not bathed or cut his hair since 1974. He stopped washing or cutting hair soon after he married, when a local priest told him this would help him to have a son. Sadly, the man has had 7 daughters since then and not a single son.
The trader told the BBC audience that Goldman Sachs rules the world and not governments; he said that people should learn how to make money on the imminent market collapse, and that they should protect their assets now. This jaw-dropping insight left me thinking whether I should wait for another 3 months before buying a house.
The 11-meter high statue known as The Middle Finger is created by the Italian contemporary artist Maurizio Cattelan, whose provocative works also include a sculpture of Pope John Paul being hit by a meteorite. The sculptor granted the statue to the city of Milan on the condition that it would always remain in front of the Stock Exchange building.
Despite the installation has fuelled criticism among local politicians and intellectuals who are calling to remove it, Milan city council has decided to keep the statue where it is at least until May 2012. According to Stefano Boeri – Milan city planner – most Milanese want to keep the sculpture because it makes them think and provokes controversial emotions.
