Mumbai: While we see different wonders of universe there also exist some people who leave a person pondering and gasping with astonishment over the things that look and sound to be totally unbelievable. Eating and drinking are the primary needs of a human being without which human survival is not possible, but there exists a man on this planet who has survived without eating food or drinking anything for last 70 years.
In the Indian district Ahmedabad, there lives an 84 year old man, named Prahlad Jani who has not eaten or drank anything for last 70 years and has still managed to survive. Prahlad is a recognized religious figure in the state. He challenges that it is because of the spiritual strength that he is alive without being dependent on the food. To test his words, he was kept hospital for two days without the provision of food and drink. He is a yogi. He claims to have not eaten or drink any thing for last seven decades. He calls himself a breatherian, one who survives on air and meditation.
He was kept into consideration with CCTV cameras fitted into the rooms for 15 days at Sterling Hospital in Ahmedabad where he remained abstained from eating and drinking. Check ups were held of his heart, chest and brain to test if any other energy source provided him energy to survive.
Doctors are mystified to find such unusual thing to happen and are looking for the probable reasons that might serve as alternate strength for his living.
