The world’s oldest man according to the Guinness world book of records , 179 year old Mahashta Murasi has come out lamenting that he has lost all hopes of dying.
Murasi born in the city of Bangalore on January 6th 1835, is recorded to have lived in Varanasi since 1903 and worked as a cobbler in the city until 1957, when he retired at the already venerable age of 122.
The world’s oldest man now says that he has been alive so long and there is hardly any hope left for him to die.
“My grandchildren have died there a few years, “said Mûrasi.” In a way, death has forgotten me. And now I have lost all hope to die!” he said according to an Indian website (india.com).
Murasi now claims that death may not come for him since according to human statistics, no one dies after the age of 150 years, let alone 170.
“Look at the statistics, nobody dies past 150, even less at 170. At that point, I guess I’m immortal or something.”
