10/13/2005: Ghost man



This is Gopal Haldar. He normally looks like this:



As a young one, he was a runt - he suffered malnutrition to the point where he had a hormonal imbalance. As a result, he's 1.21 meters (four feet) tall and weighs 24 kilograms (52 pounds).

Neighbors said he was "born to play a ghost", and so he decided to take to the role. He makes himself up with soot and becomes a stage performer. From the full story which will expire soon:

"I see it as acting," said Haldar, adding that while he roams from village to village scaring the daylights out of people, his wife and son work in the fields.

"I have no regrets. Sometimes I enjoy it," he said of his spooky profession.

He mainly does his shows during the festive seasons and earns 40 to 50 rupees (about a dollar) a time, said his wife Malati, adding resignedly, "But he is addicted to smoking hemp and spends all his money on this habit."

Lighting up a hemp cigarette in front of his wife, Haldar acknowledged his love of the herb.

"(But) when I indulge myself in smoking hemp and playing chess, I wonder if I am a real ghost or a human being," he said philosophically.

He's lucky the peasants aren't armed, although a pitchfork and torch parade isn't out of the question.

Jack Skellington! In the *ahem* flesh!

he looks more like a meth or crack addict than a pot smoker. Evidently their "hemp" doesn't give you the munchies like weed does in our country.
it is hilarious the way his wife busted him out. I can almost hear her nagging.
this guy sounds like he's kinda like some cats I know in my town...only they haven't thought of the ghost gig yet. And they are lousy chess opponents.

Even Skeletor looks better than this guy!
He should try out for Army of Darkness 2.

I think he would still get the munchies. He just can't run down to the Kwiki-Mart for a bag of Oreos and a Large Squishie.

India may now have all of our computer tech support jobs, but we have all their convenience store managers.

I can hear it now:

Painter - Hold still you f*cking c*nt!
