Mother Kali’s Son

Two video cameras can prove that I did my 2,000-pound one-arm lift. On my second attempt I was successful, and my third and fourth lifts were progressively better. But the fifth one was the best.

On my fifth lift my tongue was out of my mouth! If Ranjana had taken pictures from the other side, then my tongue could have been seen. I became like Mother Kali. On the video you can hear what kind of scream I gave.
