"I have a gift from God; Indian teenager able to withstand 11,000 VOLTS passing through his body.


 Deepak Jangra

The 16-year-old discovered his strange skill when he was repairing his mother's heater.And now he claims he can resist enough electricity to power 500 houses and can even sit with his hands inside a tub of water along with naked live wires.

He told local media:
"I have a gift from God. I feel very privileged. I have the power to do things no-one else can and I don't intend on wasting it.I used to be scared of electricity but now I am confident. I have tested myself over and over again and I will never get hurt. I can touch a live wire with my tongue and I know nothing will happen to me."
On how it started..He explained:

"My mother kept complaining that our heater was broken so I thought I'd take a look and try to fix it myself because we couldn’t afford to take it anywhere and pay someone.
"I accidentally touched the live wire with my screwdriver but nothing happened - I didn’t get a shock. But at the time I assumed we must have had a power failure in our village."
Two weeks later, he was tinkering with a jammed disc in a DVD player.He said:
"I hit the live wires again but again nothing happened. This time I knew something amazing had just happened. I touched it again and again, and then went outside to check the power supply was ok.That was the day I realised there was something unusual about me."
 "I could cope with 110 volts, 240 volts, 440 volts and my curiosity kept on growing. I wanted to know more and more. How much I could actually cope with?"
It was then that the daredevil teenager tried to put his talent to the ultimate test.He climbed an electric pole to touch the 11,000 voltage wire that powers his village – much to the shock of a petrified crowd that screamed below.

He explained:
"I was hanging from the pole touching the wires and I think people thought I was crazy. My mother came running over and started begging me to come down. She thought I was killing myself.
"But once people saw me touch the wires and walk away unscathed, everyone started cheering. I surprised everyone."
