This 100-year-old man can’t sleep without eating 1 kg of mud every day
Karu Paswan, age one hundred. A resident of Sahebganj, Jharkhand, the 27th state of India. He was born in 1919.
According to the Indian media, this old man from Jharkhand eats mud on a daily basis. He can’t sleep without eating one kilogram of mud. To see this old man-eating this mud, people from far and wide flocked to his house.
Karu Paswan said he has been in the habit of eating mud since he was 11 years old. So far that habit has turned into intoxication. Asked why he ate mud, he said. From an early age, he was forced to eat mud to fill his stomach due to hunger. He spent his childhood searching for food.
He had to fill his stomach by eating mud without getting food. There is a lot to eat in a world of scarcity. So the eleven-year-old Karu would put a piece of bread in the mouth of his siblings. And he used to fill his stomach by eating mud.
Since then, the pressure on poverty has increased. He had to eat mud to fill his stomach, even though he had to put rice in the mouths of ten boys and girls. The children were never allowed to touch it. He has filled his stomach by eating mud day after day.
He said, “In this way, he used to eat more and more mud to end his life in despair. Now I can eat full rice, but I can’t sleep without eating one kilogram of mud. ” Despite this intoxication, this old man is alive and well.
Karu’s eldest son Sia Ram Paswan said family members tried to stop him several times, but could not. Anyway, he turned around in the field and picked up the mud, and ate it.
In 2015, Sabar Agricultural University in Bihar honored him with a special award for this rare food habit. However, he is not at all proud of this. Because this disposition reminds me of the cause of this intoxication of his horrible days.
