A man who claims to be magnetic has demonstrated his bizarre talent by placing household cutlery all over his body.
Arun Raikwar, 37, placed metal objects on his upper body to prove they don’t fall off.
A photographer by profession, Arun from Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh in India, discovered his unusual talent only a few months ago when he was doing some household work.
While fixing a table with nails and a hammer, he noticed that a nail stuck to his body “like a magnet”. He said: “I have no clue how this happened. I don’t even want to know.
This is not something I am proud of but when people come to see my magnetic powers, it feels good. “This is the first time when something so bizarre has happened with my body. Initially I was scared but now I have gotten used to it.”
Arun believes that his body emits ‘special waves’ which make him feel ‘magnetic’. He has even consulted a doctor at a local hospital to make sure there was nothing physically wrong with him.Ma
The maximum magnetic power in his body is around his chest, stomach and back.
The doctors were shocked to see Arun’s condition after he demonstrated his supposed magnetism. Shailendra Shukla, 45, who was keen to look at Arun’s case, said: “This is an extremely curious case but I am not surprised because all of us have some magnetic field in our body.
The same magnetic field allows us to get MRI and ECG scans done. “In Arun’s body the magnetic field has increased and it will go away with time.
It is not permanent.” Arun has been inundated by curious locals stopping off in his home town to see his ‘powers’ for themselves.
But he adds that he is saddened by his own condition. “I don’t want these powers to be honest. I want a normal life. See, if this stays for too long and I will become a public spectacle. I don’t want that to happen,” said Arun. “But I want to register myself in the record books for once. Then I can sit back and show it to my grand children one day.”
