Without food and water for 3 years!

A meditating teenage boy in south-central Nepal had drawn the attention of scientists after attracting huge crowds and earning himself the name Buddha-reincarnate.

Ram Bahadur Bamjan's friends, relatives and managers say he has been meditating without drinking water for 3 years now and that he will carry on for another six years until he gains enlightenment.

This boy had made his appearance about two years ago but due to large media attention and overwhelmimgly large crowd,he had eloped into the jungle saying the crowds were disturbing his mediation.

This young lad has reportedly been seen again in the same place in the same mediation mode.

Its been more than 2 years now that he has survuved without food and water if his relatives claims are to be believed.He has quwstioned the basic scientific theory that we cannot survive without food and water.

Scientist are going to have a medical check on the boy,to see the evidence.
