Man alive without food or water for 70 years

Indian man is alive without food or water for 70 years

Have you heard of a man who is still alive without taking food or even water for the past 70 years?   We all know that most of the people cannot survive without food or water for more than 50 days.  But this man is surviviug without any food or water for the past 70 years. Let us read about the man who lives without food or water for the past 70 years.

A team of doctors and scientists are studying about the strange case of Mr. Prahlad Jani who is alive without food and water for the last 70 years.   Mr. Prahlad Jani claims to have left home at the age of 7 years and lived as a wandering sadhu or holy man in Rajasthan in India.  He lives on spiritual life force alone.  

Prahlad Jani  is now 83 years old and he says that he never took food or water during the past 70 years.  The long haired and bearded yogi, Prahlad Jani has been under 24 hours surveillance by a team of 30 specialist doctors during three week tests at Ahmedabad.  During the test at Ahmedabad, Jani never went for toilet.  The Doctors said that his body has not shown any symptoms of  hunger, fatigue or dehydration in spite of not drinking or eating.   Several tests were conducted on the body of Prahlad Jani in 2006 but Doctors could not find any thing.

Prahlad Jani grew up in Charod village in Gujarat.  Prahlad Jani says that the power of survival comes to him from a goddess when he was 8 years old.  He said that the goddess pours a magic elixir into a hole in his palate and it enables him to survive without food or water.

Prahlad Jani was born with a name Chunriwala Mataji grew up in Charada village in Mehsana district in Gujarat.  He left home in Rajasthan at the age of 7 years and lived in jungle.

Investigations done on Jani

 Two observations and studies were conducted on Jani in 2003 and 2010 respectively.  Both these studies were conducted under involvement of Dr. Sudhir Shah, neurologist at the Sterling Hospitals Ahmedabad.  Dr. Sudhir Shah studies people with exceptional spiritual abilities.
 It is common in India for Jains and Hindus to fast, sometimes for up to eight days, without any adverse affects, as part of their religious worship.    Most humans cannot survive without food for 50 days.    The longest hunger strike recorded was 74 days.

As per Dr. Sudhir Shah, who has examined Jani in the year 2003,  he went without food or water for 10 days in which urine seems to be reabsorbed by his body after forming in his bladder.  His weight fell slightly at the end of the investigations.

Some of the photographs of Mr. Prahlad Jani are given below.
