BBC NEWS | South Asia | Hindu helps faithful Muslims fast: "Dressed in a monkey cap and a long woollen gown, he bangs a cane along the road and calls out through his loud-hailer: 'Get up, my dears. It is time to take your meal.'"
Something nice for a change -- "a mol in a novene".
"For 16 years, Mr Lal has functioned as a walking wake-up call for the city's fasting Muslims"
This seems to be just a good-hearted guy doing a good turn for his neighbors and even the imam says he will surely go to heaven.
Barati Lal of Lucknow. Remember his name. He's a nice person.
