All of India knows how terrifying ‘Buri Nazar’ can be and can go to bizarre lengths to save what we love from this Godforsaken ‘Buri Nazar’. From putting kaala teekas to hanging nimbu-mirchis outside our houses, Buri-Nazar repellents are quite common in our country that lives on superstition.
But a farmer in Andhra Pradesh took things a little too far when he put up a huge poster of Sunny Leone next to his farm to avoid Buri Nazar. Yes, the idea behind putting a Sunny Leone poster next to his farm was that no one will look at his crops if there’s a life size poster of Sunny right next to it. All eyes would obviously be on Sunny (get this guy into Harvard already).
He told Hindustan Times:
“This year, I have a good crop on 10 acres. This has been attracting unnecessary attention of villagers and passersby. To ward off their evil eye, I thought of this idea of putting up the big flax poster of Sunny Leone a couple of days ago.”
To add to this, the poster has text that reads Orey, nannu chusi edavakura, which translates to ‘hey, don’t cry or feel jealous of me’. He did this because officials never bother to come to the fields to find out what problems the farmers are facing, and this is his way of handling his own problems.
Has this trick really worked? The strategy is working apparently and Leone is diverting people’s gaze from his field. He told HT that no one is looking at his crops now.
Baby Doll saves the day, yet again.
