Mahashta Murasi, who lives in Varanasi, north of India, has drawn many people’s attention with his amazing claim!Namely, this Indian is about to enter the Guinness Book of World Records if he manages to prove he is shockingly 179 years old. You read that right!
Murasi was allegedly born in Bangalore on January 6, 1835 and it is speculated there is paper work involved that can prove this. The old man has worked his entire life as a cobbler, to be exact until 1957, and in his 122nd year of life, he retired!
‘Maybe the angel of death forgot all about me’, jokes Murasi. He added that he has lived so long that he witnessed the death of some of his grandchildren. This time-battling man does not have any medical issues, and to add some more ‘bizarre’ to the story, his last living doctor died in 1971. If it turns out that Murasi is telling the truth, scientists can use his example to discover the key to longevity!
