"Monstrous eater"

The headline of this post contains the highest praise known to man, and the Hindustan Times bestows it upon a worthy recipient. The gentleman is known as Rappai, and this story indicates the extent of his clearly considerable abilities:
Once college students took sweet revenge on a restaurateur with Rappai’s help. He took an “unlimited meals” coupon and emptied the day’s food -- three buckets full of rice, one bucket of fish curry and 10 kg cooked meat -- in no time. Finally, law-enforcers had to be called in to end his sumptuous feast.
Joyous. On to shift to an entirely unrelated subject, let me leave you with another HT story, one that begins with the memorable line, "The Footloose Bengali is terrified." I tell you...
