Man who does not eat
Real Men Dont Eat Quiche by Bruce FeirsteinLeft versus right. In versus out. U versus Non-U. Yang versus Yin. None of these are remotely as important as the fundamental opposition between Real Man and Quiche-Eater, as revealed in Professor Feirsteins seminal work.

India's man who lives on sunshine
In a country remarkable for tales powerful deities and exotic mystics, an year-old man who claims he can survive without food or drink has baffled doctors who studied him and did not see him eat or drink anything for more than two weeks. Prahlad Jani said that he has lived for more than 70 years by absorbing water through a hole in his palate. He is regarded as a holy man by some and a fraud by many. Jani spent more than two weeks in April and May under the observation of doctors at Sterling Hospital in the western Indian city of Ahmedabad. Perhaps as equally interesting for the doctors was the fact that Jani passed no urine or stool during the time period. Shah said the normally when someone has no stool or urine, they need dialysis. The scientific research may be able to help soldiers or disaster victims live without food or water for longer stretches of time.
He says that the goddess Amba sustains him. Charada village in Mehsana district. At the age of 12, Jani underwent a spiritual 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 believes that the goddess provides him a liquid sustenance  or water which drops down through a hole in his palate , allowing him to live without food or drink.
An year-old man in India is claiming to have not had anything to eat or drink since — and doctors from the Indian military are allegedly studying him to learn his secret. The man, Prahlad Jani, is being observed in a Gurjarat hospital. Jani claims to be a breatharian — someone who does not need to eat or drink, because he draws nourishment from the air and meditation. As remarkable as his story is, Jani is not the first, nor the only, person to claim such a supernatural power. The claim that people can live without food or water is called inedia, and is actually somewhat of a common claim among religious fakirs and godmen of India. Unfortunately none of the cases have withstood scientific scrutiny.
Okay, here's a weird one.

T he crimson-clad old man with the nose ring tries to tell us that he hasn't eaten or drunk anything since the goddess Ambaji touched his tongue with her finger. That must have been around the time of the outbreak of the second world war.
Prahlad Jani is being held in isolation in a hospital in Ahmedabad, Gurjarat, where he is being closely monitored by India's defence research organization, who believe he may have a genuine quality which could help save lives. He has now spent six days without food or water under strict observation and doctors say his body has not yet shown any adverse effects from hunger or dehydration. Mr Jani, who claims to have left home aged seven and lived as a wandering sadhu or holy man in Rajasthan, is regarded as a 'breatharian' who can live on a 'spiritual life-force' alone. He believes he is sustained by a goddess who pours an 'elixir' through a hole in his palate. His claims have been supported by an Indian doctor who specializes in studies of people who claim supernatural abilities, but he has also been dismissed by others as a "village fraud. India's Defence Research Development Organisation, whose scientists develop drone aircraft, intercontinental ballistic missiles and new types of bombs.
There are few people, however busy their lives, unable to remember the last meal that they consumed. But Prahlad Jani is one of them. And the reason is that the last morsel of food that he says passed his lips did so in the early years of World War II. During the odd years since, Mr Jani says he has eaten not so much as a single grain of rice nor consumed a drop of water. Tests: year-old Prahlad Jani has twice attended hospital to be watched round the clock by eminent doctors. It is, of course, more than tempting to dismiss this Hindu holy man and his claims as the stuff of absolute nonsense.
