Meet the Monk Who Kept His Right Arm Raised for Nearly a Decade
How long can you keep one of your arms up? Sadhu Amar Bharti has been doing this for almost 50 years.
After raising his arm in the 70s, Bharti spent the first two years in severe pain. But eventually, he lost all feeling in his right arm.
Some experts argued that the blood flow to his right arm had been completely cut off, which is why he had lost all sensation and would probably never reduce it again.
Bharti was a regular married man with children until 1973. But from that year he decided to devote his life to “Shiva”.
Raising his right arm was a way to “prove” his dedication to the process.
Bharti’s arm-raising record has become the talk of the internet in 2020 and 2021. But now, another man’s impressive arm-raising feat is being noticed by all.
Although his record still isn’t close to Bharti’s, the man has shown enough potential to go the distance.
The anonymous monk claims to have raised his right arm for almost 10 years now. He recently went viral on social media after a clip showed him talking to a reporter.
When the journalist asks him how long he intends to keep his arm raised, the man replies that he has not yet decided on the future.
He goes on to say that he sleeps in the same position and has no difficulty.
The man went on to admit that he had no more strength in his raised arm.
The clip has now garnered nearly 20,000 upvotes after being posted by u/GlobalSweet.
