Wood Baba

By Kali
Another Baba - I cant resist holy men ! This one is known as the 'wood baba'and he lives in and among the piles of wood used for burning the dearly departed on the banks of the ganges,in Varanasi. His job is the guard the wood,purify it and make sure no demons hide in it. Demanding job I wonder?
