Punjilal, a 75-year-old resident of a village in India’s Madhya Pradesh state had said he would die between 1500 and 1700 local time on Thursday.
Journalists, doctors and TV channels joined thousands of curious locals outside the temple he was sitting in.
But the time came and passed and the fortune teller survived. He now says he will live till he is 90.
What a brave man! I’m shifting allegiance from the elephant god to the monkey god.
