He meets liquid only in bath and gargling. But the same size of water he takes he spits out. Thirty doctors which look after Džani can´t explain how it is possible that he hasn´t been eating and drinking for many years and his organism is still all right. Information that the 83- year-old Hindu hasn’t eaten since his 13 they don’t take very seriously. “It is a big secret for us. We absolutely don´t know how he can survive.” said neurologist Sudhír Šáh. Doctors from India are now divided in two parts. First part agrees with Džaní´s and says that it´s a revolution in medicine. Second part says that it´s one big fake. Similar cases have been known from other parts of the World, mostly from south and Southeast Asia. (M. Kubica, T. Durčák, T. Výtisk, III. A)
