April happenings

Every April thousands arrive at the ancient Narsingh temple in Joshimath, India, to watch a priest possessed by the goddess Bhagwati eat pounds of butter (ghee), sugar (gur), uncooked rice, and an uncooked goat (tartare). Then he does a crazy dance (you would too). What happens after the dance I prefer not to think about. If that weren't enough, all the food is locally grown and organic.

  1. Since they've marginalized those of us who enjoy eating squirrels, i just don't have the ambition to try live goat ...

  2. India is terrible at Olympic Sports, but it sounds like they could be a force in competive eating. They should send that priest to the Nathan's hot dog eating contest.
