An essential element for survival of living beings is food and water. Though you can live without them for few days, abandoning them completely is really astonishing.
Prahlad Jani, fondly known as Mataji, claims to have last consumed food and water in 1940. He claims that Goddess Amba (Durga) sustains him.
Prahlad Jani, left his home state of Rajasthan when he was seven years old and moved to Ambaji in Gujarat. Ambaji is a famous temple dedicated to Goddess Durga and attracts several pilgrims from India and abroad.
Since Jani was 11, he has been dressing up as a female, adorning red saree, jewellery and crimson flowers in his long tresses. A religious awakening made him follow Amba Mata ardently and he now claims that Amba Mata sustains him.
The liquid sustenance provided by the Goddess comes down through a hole in his palate, allowing him to live without food and water.
Prahlad Jani has gathered a lot of Indian and international attention. Several times he was kept under examination and it was revealed that the hermit appeared healthy and fit despite not eating, drinking or passing urine and stool.
Many international scientists have claimed that the investigations were altered and that the hermit was allowed to bathe and gargle, and while doing so, he secretly drank water.
Harvard Humanitarian Initiative dismissed the observation tagging it impossible. They claimed that malnourished bodies will soon have liver failure, tachycardia and heart strain. They also stated that human body cannot survive more than 2 weeks without food and water.
