Well, who doesn’t get afraid of electric shock? But this 16-year-old teenager plays with 11,000 volts.

Yes, you read it right. His body can withstand 11,000 volts.

It is a high voltage power line is used to supply electricity to villages and towns. If it can supply electricity to 1,000 kilometers, you can imagine how powerful it is.

But this teenager can withstand it. Shocking?

Not believable? It is true.

He discovered his bizarre talent by accident when he was repairing his mother’s heater.

He is Deepak Jangra, Human electricity insulator from a remote village near Sonipat, in Haryana, northern India who can resist the same amount of voltage required to power 500 houses. He even sits with his hands inside a tub of water along with naked live wires.

The 16-year-old says,

 ‘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.’

He also said,

‘My mother kept complaining that our heater was broken so I thought I’d take a look and try and fix it myself because we couldn’t afford to take it anywhere and pay someone to fix it. 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.’


This Is How He Realized That He Can Withstand 11,000 volts

It is when he got a movie stuck inside his DVD player and was trying to attempt to retrieve the disc.

‘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 realized there was something unusual about me,’ he said.

From that moment onwards, Deepak has been experimenting with various devices of different voltages.

He tried light bulbs, TV wires, an electric woodcutter and an electric water pump but each time, he would simply stop the devices working but not suffer any injuries.

He added: ‘I experimented with different levels of voltages and my body was still unaffected.

‘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?’


His Curiosity Lead Him To Test An Electric Pole Too!!

One day, he decided to test his limits by climbing an electric pole in a nearby field to touch the 11,000 voltage high-tension wire that powers his village. The crowd had gathered beneath him and started screaming in fear as they thought he was trying to commit suicide. Even his mother came running over and begged him to come down thinking he was killing himself.

He said, ‘But once people saw me touch the wires and walk away unscathed, everyone started cheering. I surprised everyone.’

‘I work with my bare hands without any pliers or other equipment. But I don’t charge anything, I don’t make any money.’


Doctors did some blood test and did an overall check up but they found nothing wrong with Deepak.

His widowed mother Khajani Devi, 35, who has two other sons Sushil, 18, and 12-year-old Sunil, finds it difficult to understand his amazing abilities.

She said, ‘I feel it is the blessing of his late father. His father passed away in October 2011 and in April 2012 he found he had this talent.’

Whereas, Gaurav Singh, 25, who is an electrical engineer from Delhi, said: ‘The power of 11,000 volts is fatal.

‘Even if a man is standing five meters away he can get pulled by the high-tension wire and burn to death. If a person touches 11,000 volts, he wouldn’t get a shock – he would die instantly.

He is the real electric boy who doesn’t need any protective shields with incredible power. Isn’t he? Also, check out the electricity prices around the World.
