Indians are reportedly flocking to try a new craze – getting high on scorpion stings.
Roadside stalls in the Bharuch district of Gujarat are offering punters the chance to get their palms stung by scorpions kept in aluminium containers.
The Times of India reports that the momentary pain gives way to an illusionary floating feeling.
The scorpion stings costs up to £2.70 a go.
The sting sellers are very secretive about their trade and entertain new clients only with proper references.
