Indian man eats glass for dinner.
An Indian man in the northern city of Kanpur says glass and empty liquor bottles are a regular part of his diet. Dashrath, 40, claims he first consumed crushed glass with alcohol in a suicide attempt during a depression.
A fisherman by profession, Dashrath says he not only survived the suicide attempt, but realized that he had a taste for glass. "I have been eating glass for the past fifteen years and I have not had any problems," he said, adding he also eats lead bullets. But he has some trouble eating thick soda bottles.
Dashrath's mother, who sometimes serves her son glass bulbs and bottles with his dinner platter, says her son appears to be healthy. "My son eats glass regularly, especially when he is drunk. He has never had any problems after eating glass and we have never had to take him to see a doctor", she said.
For nearby residents, "glass man," as he is popularly known, is nothing less than a tourist spectacle. Visitors to the city regularly stop by Dashrath's fish stall, where he makes a show of bargaining fish prices and chewing glass.Posted in Health & Food by
