When you see the delicate Murasi wrapped in his blanket, you would never believe that his frail body hides a phenomenal secret: the former shoemaker from India is with his incredible 179 years officially the oldest man in the world.

Murasi was born in 1835 — according to records of the time — during the British colonial era. Two centuries and seven generations later, he has outlived his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. That’s the tragic downside of “immortality.” “Death simply forgot me,” said Murasi. “Since a long time I have no more hope to sometime be allowed to die. I think I’m immortal.” Murasi makes no secret of the reason for his unbelievable longevity: “My trick is to surrender to everything that happens.”

If peace and tranquility are really the ingredients for immortality, we can learn a lot from Murasi. But in all seriousness: who wants to live forever?
