Sarpa Raja

Sarpa-Ra­ja ("the ser­pent king") is a creepy fakir who trav­els from vil­lage to vil­lage and ex­hibits him­self as God-man whose par­ents, so he says, were a snake man and a hu­man woman, and he al­so claims to be an Avatar of the Great God of Snakes.

He walks the fire, sleeps on the bed of nails and demon­strates the abil­i­ties of his ser­pent-like back­bone which he can fold and twist in the most 'im­pos­si­ble' di­rec­tions.

Af­ter the per­for­mance he col­lects all the ru­pees he can and moves on to the next vil­lage...
