This is indeed stranger than fiction!
Since we are born, one of the first things we learn is that we need food and water to survive. It’s even crazy to question this fact.
But there is a person who claims that he hasn’t eaten anything for 70 years. He even claims that he doesn’t drink water. He doesn’t feel tired, he doesn’t feel sleepy.
Of course, this sounds funny until scientists observed him for 10 days straight, every single second.. when the 10 days finished they were baffled.
The man told the truth.
Born Chunriwala Mataji, Jani grew up in Charada village in Mehsana district. According to Jani, he left his home in Rajasthan at the age of seven, and went to live in the jungle.
At the age of 11, Jani underwent a religious experience and became a follower of the Hindu goddess Amba. From that time, he chose to dress as a female devotee of Amba, wearing a red sari-like garment, jewellery and crimson flowers in his shoulder-length hair. Jani is commonly known as Mataji (“[a manifestation of] The Great Mother“). Jani believes that the goddess provides him a liquid sustenance or “nectar,” which drops down through a hole in his palate, allowing him to live without food or water.
Since the 1970s, Jani has lived as a hermit in a cave in the rainforest near the Gujarati temple of Ambaji, awakening at 4am each day and spending most of his time meditating.
Despite having doctors study Jani, there are skeptics.
“The bottom line is that even fasting for more than a day can be dangerous,” said Keri Gans, a registered dietician practicing in New York City and a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. “You need food to function.”
How can he take his daily dose of vitamins?
That is a question Indian scientists hope to find out.
Maybe the whole concept of life we have as humans is primitive. Maybe for the next step of our evolution we should be able to learn how to sustain our bodies without consuming anything but sunlight and air.
Who knows, maybe we even have this upgrade in ourselves and all we need to do is unlock it.
Anyway, what this man does is nothing to be taken for granted.
