Hello Paul,
I suspect a "real sadhu" is someone who will give a commission to your guide. Dressing and painting yourself like this sounds like a reasonably profitable job. Just like many times before I feel that you are much too generous with giving away good photos for free by putting them in the WS. Or worse: those who never look at WS photos will miss a lot of interesting views. Both additional photos today are very interesting and well taken and deserve to be seen by all remaining active members of the site (20-30?).
My compliments also to the entertaining note.
Best regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: Real and fake?

Thank you Gert,


I'm afraid I don't understand your first sentence.
I guess you meant that a fake sadhu will give a commission (a reward) to my guide to have brought me there but not a real sadhu ...

Kind regards,
Paul

Hello Paul,
Maybe I should have written 'a so called "real sadhu"' to make it clear that those giving rewards to guides are fakes presented to the visitor as real. Whereas the real sadhus, in case there are any at all in a temple frequented by tourists, don't care about money and refuse to pay the guides and are thus dismissed by guides as fake.
Best regards,
Gert

Hi Gert,


I did not see the 'sadhu' give money to my guide.
But of course such a thing would only happen later. They still had enough opportunity not to have to do this while the tourist was still present.

Kind regards,
Paul
