Indian grocer Radhakant Baijpai definitely has a purpose in life: make sure that he has the longest ear hair in the planet. Radhakant was crowned the official Guinness world record holder for the longest ear hair back in 2003, when his aural fronds were an already-impressive 13.2cm long.
But that didn’t stop him going after his goal of ever-longer hair on his ears. After a number of more years of properly cultivating and nurturing for the ear-hair, Radhakant’s tufts now grow an astonishing 25cm. He is now waiting for Guinness adjudicators to validate that he has set a new high, hairy bar for his chosen field.
