In a video that is going viral on the internet, a beggar who identified himself as "Sunny Baba" can be seen speaking fluent English and then performing the popular 1959 song "He'll Have to Go" by American musician Jim Reeves.
The video started with the cameraperson asking a few questions to the Sunny in English to which he responded with ease. When asked what he did for a living, Sunny simply said, "I beg". When asked what else he did to spay his time, Sunny joyfully replied that he was a singer and dancer.
He then went on to sing the Jim Reeves song, which he seemed to know by heart.

Wonder what circumstances would have compelled him to be on the streets & beg ! Yet he looks so content ! This is a classic instance of having achieve Viveka (disenchantment) & Vairagya (detachment) from desires & he is clearly looking inward— Besura Taansane (@BesuraTaansane) April 21, 2020
