Baba with ritual Rudraksha beads and white Vibhuti holy ash spread over his skin, sitting crossed-legged on the Ghats of Varanasi (India)

This Sadhu, high on weed (ritual Cannabis) was apparently telling very funny stories and all the Indian people around him were laughing a lot. They called him "funny baba".
