Yogi who lives on nothing - Prahlad Jani

Prahlad Jani

An 83-year-old yogi named, Prahlad Jani has lived for 70 years with out drinking water and eating any food. 
Prahlad Jani is popularly known as Mataji has baffled people from all walks of life by his unique ability to stay away from food and water for the past 68 years. In fact he is better known as the Yogi who lives on nothing.

A team of Doctors from Defence Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences (DIPAS) and the Sterling Hospital have analysed the physiology of Jani for 15 consecutive days from April 22, 2010 to May 6, 2010
He was kept under strict observation during this period. He was given only limited water to wash and bathe and the water sample was measured to see whether he had drunk any. Ha did not have any access to food for the entire period and “neither did he pass urine or stool”, according to the hospital’s deputy superintendent, Dr Dinesh Desai.
Most people can live without food for several weeks, with the body drawing on its fat and protein stores. But the average human can survive for only three to four days without water.

Mataji claims that for the past 70 years he has gone without food and water after being blessed by a Goddess. If only his methods could be replicated we could help our soldiers in the borders to survive better.
All the doctors of come to one conclusion though – that Mataji is in perfect shape for a man of 80+ years. All his report may well have been that of a young man of 20 years. This is a marvel in itself.
