Prahlad Jani is coming up on his 84th birthday. He claims to have left his hometown of Rajasthan, India when he was seven years old to live in the jungle. He then became very spiritual and went through a religious experience. He now praises the Hindu goddess Amba. He also claims that he has not had anything to eat or drink in 70 years. He says Amba keeps him nourished.
A team of doctors and scientists in the city of Ahmedabad, India at Sterling Hospital have been monitoring Jani and are baffled that he is in perfect health. Most people can live without food for a few weeks, but only three to four days without any water. Jani claims that the goddess gives him all the energy he needs through his daily mediation routine.
At 108 hours after he was admitted to the hospital for observation he has not had any food or water, and has had no IV either. He continues with his meditation routine as normal. After completing numerous studies they have also found that he has the brain of a 25 year old. Doctors and scientists are hoping that this man can help others learn how to survive in extreme conditions without any food or water.
He is going to be under observation for 15 days at the hospital. He tells the doctors that he believes the goddess drops liquid sustenance for him through his palate so that he does not have the need to drink any water. Jani has lived in a cave in the rainforest since 1970 and wakes up at 4am every day, spending most of his time meditating.
