He Eats Human Flesh (Cannibal)

Hi Friends! I have spent the better part of the last decade trying to meet a real-life cannibal, and I finally have completed my goal here in Varanasi, India.  For real! His name is "Baba" and he is an Aghori man who lives on the banks of the Ganges River - the site where more than 300 bodies are cremated every day and their ashes are thrown into the river.  Varanasi is the most spiritual place in India, and for Hindus, it's the holiest place to have their bodies burned. Baba explained to me the various reasons why he eats humans (spoiler alert: he said the heart is the best part of the body) - and what I discovered will leave you speechless.
