India's Spiderman


He is India's Spiderman, but Jyoti Raju prefers calling himself Kothi Manusha or Monkey Man.

Raju is a treat to watch. He climbs up steep walls effortlessly and ensures that everyone has their hearts in their mouth when he does a somersault in the middle of his uphill climb.

This is Raju's passion as well as his profession, as he makes a living from the tips given by his admirers.
