I have to give you the sad end to a slightly bonkers story.
I’d shared with you, earlier this year, photos of a man in south India who worshiped Donald Trump as a god.
The poor Indian worshipper died of a heart attack at the weekend.
Here’s the story from the Hindustan Times:
Bussa Krishna, a 33-year old man from Telangana, who hit the headlines by turning his puja room into a temple for US President Donald Trump and later made a statue of him, died of heart attack at his parents’ home…According to his family members, Krishna collapsed while having a cup of tea.
“He was feeling depressed for the last couple of weeks after coming to know that Trump and Melania had tested positive for Covid-19. But he was healthy and had no prior medical complications,” his cousin Vivek told reporters.
Last year, he had built a six-foot statue of Trump in front of his house and had been conducting regular pujas and bathed it with milk. He pasted posters and stickers of the US President all over his house and had written graffiti praising Trump on the walls. He used to wear T-shirts with Trump’s name on it.
Seems kind of pointless for this man to die so young.
He sounds to have been harmless, and all he wanted to do was meet his hero, who had appeared to him in a dream, apparently.
