Breatharian? Prahlad Jani News Goes Silent After Six Days. It’s Day 11. Why no news?

Prahlad Jani of India, on a fast with a news blackout after Day 6On April 28, 2010, the London Daily Telegraph posted a news story about an experiment involving the self-proclaimed “breatharian” Prahlad Jani. He says he hasn’t had any food or drink in 70 years. The Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences in India’s Defence Research Development Organisation began an experiment on April 22 in which Prahlad Jani is to be monitored without food or drink for a 15 day period to verify his claims.

Having gone through six days verified without food or water, Prahlad Jani remained healthy. But six days of fasting is within normal human limits.

Today is Day 11 of the experiment. There has been no news since Day 6. No news from mainstream media sources, no news from the blogosphere, no news from the Institute of Physiology and Allied Sciences.

What’s happening to Prahlad Jani?

    I am very interested too to find news about this subject.
    Is there a way to contact an important news agency and ask about this?

    Put him on American Idol, or have him sing the Star Strangled Banter before a Nascar race – oooh, oooh, i know – have him make a sex tape or try to blow up some ol’ car in front of Walmart! Yeah, then we’ll find out all about him. Otherwise, who cares?

    Day 13. No new media reports on this experiment for a week now. No notice on the DRDO website, either.

    Day 14. No new media reports on this experiment for 8 days now. No notice on the DRDO website, either.

  7. Jim says:

    A blogger in Gujarat is now claiming to have obtained a statement at the end of the experiment. But this alleged statement is not currently available from the military group in India said to be carrying out the experiment, and no newspaper in India is reporting the results either.

    I’m skeptical about this.
