  • Raj Mohan can withstand several amps of electricity passing through his body without any bodily harm
  • Although his eyes get glazed over when the current passes through his body, rendering him temporarily blind
  • Raj’s body is over 10 times more resistant than that of an average human

Truth is stranger than fiction Indeed! Do you know what happens if you pass a tenth of an amp through a human’s body? He/she will die without any question, due to electrocution. Surprisingly, this is not true for the Electric Man of India- Raj Mohan Nair.

This man can do extraordinary things as his body is immune to high voltage electricity. He can withstand several amps of electricity passing through his body without any bodily harm. This Human conductor wraps exposed wires around his body, and electricity flows from main plug, through his body, to electric bulbs, iron plates etc, said the incredibleweird.com report.

While a fraction of one ampere is enough to kill an ordinary human being, this man can conduct several amps through his body without any harm caused. With one wire in his mouth for better conductivity and the other anywhere else on his body, Mohan lets the electrical current run through him and into whatever other device he’s trying to power on.

He got to know about his super-power when he was just 7 years old. He said, “I lost my mother and was depressed. Finally, I decided to end my life by climbing the transformer and grabbing a live wire. To my amazement, nothing happened to me. It was then I realized that I had been blessed with a gift from God.”

The incredibleweird.com report said, there is nothing special about his looks but witnessing him while preparing chicken by grabbing a hot plate in his own hands will surely leave you in complete shock. If this much amount of current passes through a normal person for just a fraction of second then it causes permanent muscle damage and may stop one’s heartbeat.

Although, his eyes get glazed over when the current passes through his body, rendering him temporarily blind. After testing Raj Mohan Nair’s resistance to electricity using a multimeter, Daniel Browning Smith found that Raj’s body is over 10 times more resistant than that of an average human. He has capabilities, which no ordinary human possesses.

Displaced Villagers Return to Old Mosul Only to Find Destruction, Danger and Dead Bodies; Returnees Claim ‘Even Soldiers Stay Indoors After Dark’

The wreckage from a few of the destroyed homes has been cleared away as a handful villagers visit their homes in Old Mosul, which has been completely destroyed following a battle against the ISIS

Old Mosul
Abd Elaam is one of the only people living in the Old Mosul in Iraq, where the destruction has been compared to World War II Dresden, Aug. 27, 2017.
  • Old Mosul has been completely shattered in the battle to recapture the city from Islamic State militants
  • About 900,000 people have been displaced by the battle for Mosul, and many neighborhoods have been completely destroyed by war
  • Areas around the village are slowly being re-populated, but many places are entirely without services like trash collection, electricity, and running water

Mosul, September 5, 2017 : “All you can hear at night is the sound of broken doors flapping in the wind,” says Abd Elaam, a 50-year-old furniture maker. “Even soldiers stay indoors after dark.”

Elaam is currently one of the very few civilians living in Old Mosul, an ancient neighborhood shattered by the battle to recapture the city from Islamic State militants. Like many families that survived IS rule, he says, his resources are completely exhausted by the war and he has nowhere else to go.

Other families trickle in by day, looking to repair their broken homes or recover the bodies of their dead loved ones. But even during daylight hours, the neighborhood is dangerous, riddled with bombs and an unknown number of militants hiding out in the vast network of tunnels under the tightly-packed buildings and piles of rubble. The level of destruction has been compared to World War II Dresden.

“A IS militant came out of one those houses two weeks ago,” Elaam says, gesturing towards another dusty, broken street. “He blew himself up near two families. They were all injured and the bomber was cut in half.”

The militant’s body, like other fallen IS fighters in Old Mosul, was shoved under the rubble to reduce the smell of rot in the 45 degree-plus weather. When Iraq declared victory over IS in early July, the bodies of dead militants lay scattered in buildings and on the streets of nearly every block. Authorities searched through giant piles of concrete, once homes, for the remains of civilian families. But, they said, the only government department responsible for the IS bodies was garbage collection.

Old Mosul is far from re-establishing city services like trash pickup. There is no running water, electricity or businesses open. Yet other families are following Elaam’s lead, and plan to return to their homes as soon as possible.

“In a few days I will move back and bring my family,” says Ghanem Younis, 72, resting on a beige plastic chair in a sliver of shade. “If they provide electricity and water, everyone would come back.”

Younger men and children squat around Ghanem, recalling the isolation of the final months of the battle that began late last year. “We couldn’t go more than 50 meters from our front doors,” says Sufian, a 27-year-old unemployed construction worker. “We spent our time sitting right here with Uncle Ghanem.”

But it is not sentiment driving some families home despite the dangers, adds Elaam, as more neighbors join the conversation.

“People cannot stay with friends and relatives forever,” he says. Camps for those displaced are also crowded. “No one has anywhere else to go,” he adds.

Airstrike Damage

A few blocks away, outside the checkpoints that cut off the Old City, the Zanjelli neighborhood is slowly being repopulated.

Construction workers build a market to replace one destroyed in airstrikes, while the owners of what was once a shoe store paint the shelves, hoping to re-open in the coming weeks. The wreckage from a few of the destroyed homes has been cleared away, and the bodies of many of the dead are now buried in graveyards.

In less than five minutes of conversation, at least three people tell us about family members, including toddlers, killed in airstrikes in the last months of battle.

“There was an IS sniper firing from next to my house and the airstrike hit us,” says Youseff Hussain, 35. “Fifteen members of my family were killed.”

Rebuilding the neighborhood, adds Hussain, is made doubly frustrating by the fact that it was Iraq’s allies, including the United States, who destroyed many of their homes as they battled IS from the air.

Many locals say the sacrifice of property and lives may have been necessary to prevent the city, then under siege, from total starvation. But after bearing the brunt of the war with IS, largely considered a global threat, residents say they thought the international community or the government would help them rebuild.

The only aid families here get right now, Zanjelli residents say, is Iraqi military rations, as soldiers share their food.

“There is nothing they can do to pay us back for what we have lost,” says Hussain. “But shouldn’t we at least get refunded for our property?” (VOA)

4 Rules To A Healthier Life 

  1. Break the myth that one needs to have three meals in a day. Always have small, healthy meals throughout the day at regular intervals. This will manage insulin levels, keep hunger in check and supplement the body with a constant source of energy.
  2. Do not confuse thirst with hunger. This can add a few extra, unnecessary calories which might be difficult to be digested and processed by the body.
  3. Always read the label on food products. Calculate the calorie information provided to accommodate the product into your calorie allowance while on a weight loss schedule.
  4. If you think only food is going to lead you to a healthier life, you need to think again. Staying active and regular exercise are key to a healthy lifestyle.
