*originally, a mendicant dervish. Although of Muslim origin, the term has come to be applied in India to Hindus as well, largely replacing gosvamin, sadhu, bhikku, and other designations. Fakirs are generally regarded as holy men who are possessed of miraculous powers, such as the ability towalk on fire. Today, through years of training, the modern Fakir is a person who performs many of these holy men’s feats showing the body’s remarkable resilience, the ability to perform past pain, and to channel this experience into entertaining demonstrations.
**These feats require the performer to have a high understanding of the science and biology to understand how to safely perform these feats. In addition the performer must overcome both primal fears and the bodies natural aversion to these experiences. Many of these feats originate from ancient times and the art of sideshow itself is very much an American institution.
