Who Am I? - Man looks for help when in need… This leads him to search for tools that provide solutions to his problems.

Aghoris - It is not uncommon for humans to eat flesh. There still exist the ‘Aghoris’ who practice the grotesque act of devouring a piece of dead rotten flesh, especially if the corpse has just been reduced to ashes. These devout followers of Lord Shiva are convinced that this is not a cannibalistic act. English, 12 mins.
