That is a good point - the only thing I can think of, is my surmising before that it might not have been an actual Sadhu but just a very religious Hindu that others confused for a Sadhu.

It would be interesting if the supposed pictures of Sadhu's in India mentioned in the thesis could be located. If they could be, it would be interesting to see.
