Prahlad Jani - The Indian Starving Yogi shocks allMay 12th, 2010 - 1:05 am ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Ahmadabad, May 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Indian Starving Yogi – Prahlad Jani has managed to create a huge stir worldwide, because he has neither eaten a morsel of food and nor had a sip of water for the last seven decades. He is currently 82 years old, and is managing to create headlines all over the world. The Indian doctors kept him under constant observation for a fortnight at a military hospital. But they were not able to solve the shocking mystery of how he manages to survive. The doctors also had no idea why there were no ill effects from the lack of water and food on his body. They even added that his brain was also mentally alert and could be compared to a 25-year-old person’s brain. And his body was said to be healthier by the doctors than a person who was in his 40’s.
“We still do not know how he survives. It is still a mystery what kind of phenomenon this is,” according to neurologist Sudhir Shah. The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), the state defense and military research institute had performed the experiment in a bid to find out what makes the yogi tick, but at the end of the experiment they were none the wiser about it.
