Ever heard of a person who lives off milk and water?

Well, you have now.

Meet Manju Dharra, a 26-year-old woman from India who cannot tolerate solid food and has lived off a liquid diet since birth. By liquid, we mean, milk, tea, and water. She consumes about four to five liters of milk per day.

Manju has a medical condition called achalasia, which is a disorder of the esophagus. The esophagus is a muscular tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach. At the end of the esophagus is a muscular ring called the lower esophageal sphincter, which relaxes when a person swallows. When a person has achalasia, nerves that control the said sphincter do not function properly. Ultimately, the sphincter fails to relax and remains constricted. Surgery is often required to correct this condition.

So what happens when Manju eats solid food?

“If I eat something then I throw up and I feel very, very bad. Now I feel fear when I look at solid food,” Manju says.

Bhagwati Dharra, Manju’s mother, says that she did not become concerned with Manju’s condition until she reached the age of two years. She tried to feed her daughter rice and bread but she would just end up being sick. Bhagwati first believed that her daughter is being a fussy eater, but then she realized later that her daughter might be ill. They took Manju to various doctors and tried several treatments but nothing helped improve her condition.

A pediatrician in Jaipur explained that Manju’s condition can be cured by surgery and advised the family that they need to consult a specialist. However, due to financial constraints, they are unable to afford to do either. Instead, they invested in a cow that will help provide Manju’s milk.

Manju is taller than an average Indian woman and appears healthy but in reality, she suffers from stomach pains. But despite this, she still manages to perform household chores. She is one of seven children – none of her six siblings suffer from achalasia.

Manju’s condition has greatly affected her quality of life. Hopefully, she can soon get the medical treatment that she undoubtedly needs.

Most people think that as their age advances, the slimmer their chances are at achieving their wildest dreams. It makes sense because the body grows weak and the things we do becomes limited as time passes.

In this video we found, a street dancer in Madrid was filmed inviting passersby to dance with him. Some obliged and in the middle of one of the dances, an old lady with a cane was seen walking to the performers. She looks as if she wants to dance because her eyes were longing.

The people asked her to give it a try but said that she had arthritis. When she finally mustered the guts, she approached the dancer, who suggested that they dance a slow dance. At first, the number looks boring and really slow, but in a turn of events, the two break out into a very energetic salsa!

Swimming is considered as one of the best recreational activities that can be enjoyed by the young and old.

It is, however, important to exercise caution whenever you are in the water. Safety should always be your priority in order to prevent any untoward incidents. For example, you have to be extremely careful with your surroundings in order to avoid a shark attack.

Or perhaps even from seemingly-harmless catfishes.
