FARS- “Amou” an endearing word in Farsi used especially by kids for kind men to show their affection, and in this story our man is called by that, Amou Haji. Amou Haji, aged 80, has not bathed for 60 years. He lives in Dejgah village in the southern Iranian province of Fars, Tehran Times reported.
The last record of longest time going without showers belonged to a 66-year-old Indian man, Kailash Singh, who had not taken a bath over 38 years. Not to our surprise, when we searched the reason behind Amou Haji’s way of life, we found out that he had gone through some emotional setbacks in his youth and from then on decided to live an isolated life. He escaped from the hands of a few young men who offered him free shower, because he believes cleanliness brings him sickness.
Amou Haji’s favourite food is rotten meat of dead animals specially porcupines and when asked to eat clean food and drink clean water he gets mad.
