Gwalior hermit loves hot green chillies

Popularly known as Mirchiwala Baba, a hermit of Sagartal in Gwalior loves to eat hot chillies, and has been doing so for the past two decades.

Gwalior, May 13 : Popularly known as 'Mirchiwala Baba', a hermit of Sagartal in Gwalior loves to eat hot chillies, and has been doing so for the past two decades.

Mirchiwala Baba, aged around 50, says he does not experience agony of any sort in his system.

"I never feel any burning sensation or pain in my body, and in my stomach particularly. People earn many things, some earn money, while others name by the grace of God. But I have accumulated no wealth, and till date, no one doubts that I might be eating food, besides chillies, that's my earning," Mirchiwala Baba claims.

Normally, the Baba eats around 250 grams of chillies a day, and when hungrier, he ends up eating a kilogram.

He has no yearning for anything else, except for a cup of tea to drown the chillies down.

Curiously brings devotees to the Baba's doorstep often.

They bring green chillies and at times red chillies, just in case the Baba prefers to change his diet.

"We bring chillies to offer to the Baba because he eats only this. We do not come here out of any greed. We have faith in the Baba and want to have his blessings, besides a glimpse of him," said Rajendra Yadav, one of his devouts.

Doctors say that if a person keeps consuming anything routinely, the body gets used to the food, thereby fulfilling the need of a required nutrient.

"Whatever changes take place, it's in the liver. The liver breaks down the food that we eat and fulfills the need of the body for a particular nutrient. It brings that nutrient to a chemical level inside the body thereby providing body with that particular requirement. So, intake of only chillies and tea can help a man to sustain without any problem," said Dr K K Tiwari, Head of Department of Medicine, J H Hospital, Gwalior.

The Mirchiwala Baba seems content with his chillies.
