Janakpur - Nepal.

Dans la religion Hindouiste, Le sādhu est un homme qui a renonce à la société pour se consacrer à la quête de la libération de l'illusion (māyā),.
Les Sadhus abandonnent travail ou études, coupent tout lien avec leur famille, ne possèdent rien et vivent d’aumônes. Ils passent leur existence à se déplacer sur les routes de l'Inde et du Népal.
C’est aussi parfois un moyen de se libérer du système des castes, si pesant encore aujourd’hui dans la société indienne.

In the Hindu religion, the sādhu is a man who renounced society to devote himself to the quest for liberation from illusion (māyā),.
Sadhus give up work or studies, cut off all ties with their family, have nothing and live on alms. They spend their lives on the roads of India and Nepal.
It is also sometimes a way to free oneself from the caste system, which is still so burdensome in Indian society.

I must add that is an excellent study. I get carried away.
Neil Marcus17-Apr-2020 16:21
Essentially he depends on strangers to care for his needs even though he looks as if he could care for his own needs. A "loser".
Cynical Neil
