Indore man is in love with crabsJanuary 13th, 2008 - 5:37 pm ICT by admin
Indore, Jan.13 (ANI): Discovering a crab coming close to our body can make most of us flee the spot or at least sweating for hours in fear. But for Syed Yakat Ali of Indore it is an ultimate joy to allow over 500 crabs move all over his body.
Ali claims to have developed friendship with crabs during childhood and today loves spending hours with them. His bizarre hobby to nurture crabs has also earned him the nickname Crab Man, as he enjoys being identified with crabs.
“I have been fond of crabs since my childhood and I would say that God has showered His blessing on me. If you see any kind of creature, you are sure to get scared but that creature doesn’t bite you because of the love. The creature doesn’t bite you because God has made creature as well as human being. This principle applies to my harmony with the crabs,” says Syed Yakat Ali.
Neighbours watch him playing with crabs in shock but appreciate his courage.
“I have seen his two to three skills. The first one, Syed put himself in a cage and spent time with the crabs. In the second, Syed put 500 crabs on his chest and stayed caged for hours. In future, he wishes to put over 1,000 crabs on his chest. I am really shocked to see that this man has been bestowed by God’s blessing to bear so many crabs on his chest and yet remain so patient and normal,” said Alok Suple, a neighbour.
Ali, who is in his mid-thirties, lets the crabs to cling on to his nose as well as on his tongue. He claims it doesnt pain him even if any crab stings him at times. He also claims that he can stay with the crabs as well as scorpions for many days.
In future, Ali plans to remain in the company of more than 1,500 crabs. (ANI)
