    New Delhi (Sputnik): Amused at the skill of a beggar in tatters, several Twitter users wondered what brought the “talented” man to the streets, while others said his English and his accent were even better than of the man filming him.

    “I beg”, said the man with a smile on his face when asked what he does to make a living in the streets of Bihar's Patna city. It turns out that the man not only speaks fluent English, but also dances and sings English songs.

    The beggar, Sunny Baba, performed a hit song from 1959 “He'll Have To Go” by American country singer Jim Reeves, taking social media by storm.

    The viral video has now racked up more than 11,000 views, with hundreds of comments expressing amusement and surprise at the man singing in flawless English, a widely spoken language which is termed necessary for career growth in the country. 

    Others suspected that the man might not be Indian, but a Caribbean or African native.
