Abstract :

A True Case of Rebirth

Purpose : to estimate the veracity of Rebirth theory and to open new door for scientific research. A case telling the previous life is very rare. I found a child Akash of 4.5 years age telling incidents that happened ten years ago. Basic procedure was to interrogate the child and relatives of the current and the past life, for corroboration. Main findings: The child, at the age of 2 years, began saying Amalgaon, his place in the previous life. He asked to take him there to meet his parents. He told his past name Kalpesh and said he died of drowning in river Chikhali, while immersing Ganapati. Accidentally Amalgaon was found, where a death by drowning was recorded ten years ago. He told names of parents then, recognized many relatives, road to house etc. He told 85 memories of the past life, in Amalgaon and Chalisgaon. He recognized Shekhar, and told Shekhar took his body home from river after his brother came home. He told his brother is an engineer. Brother became engineer after his death. Conclusion: The case proves Rebirth and the presence of Pranamaya Kosh or Soul which exists after death, and can see, think, experience, has logic and time sense, though brain and body are absent. This is important for science to search.

A True Case of Rebirth

Introduction: Rebirth is supposed to be a province of Philosophy. Hence scientists do not take interest in it. Science is the knowledge of experience. If we experience Rebirth, we must thoroughly investigate and if proved, should believe in it. To deny rebirth without study is a superstition, which should not be in science. Material & Method: A child of four and half years age telling previous life is studied. Interviews of his parents of present and past lives are recorded with other relatives. Child was taken to Amalgaon where he showed the place of his drowning and death, recognized relatives and house. Relatives corroborated his statements 85 in number, related to Amalgaon and Chalisgaon. Observations: I, Dr. P. V. Vartak, a practising Physician and Surgeon, studied a case of rebirth recently, from 19 to 21 Jan. 2004. I am reporting it to the medical world. During December 2003, I understood that a child aged four and half years, named as Akash Amarsinha Rajput, residing at Flat No.1, B Wing, Suruchi Apartment, Manaraj Park, Jalgaon, 425001, Maharashtra, India, tells memories of his past life. I met the child Akash Rajput, at his place on 19th January 2004. I have vediorecorded the interviews of Akash, his mother, father and grandfather. Akash told me that he was Kalpesh in the previous birth, was residing at Amalgaon, he drowned and died while submerging a Ganesh idol in a river named as Chikhali, afterwards one Mr. Shekhar took out his dead body from the river, he remembers his previous parents, brother Ganesh and sister Yogita. Akash was ready to show me the route to Amalgaon, to his previous home and identify his relatives of the past life. Mr. Amarsimha Rajput, the father of Akash, Mrs. Sapana, the mother and Mr.Babusing Rajput, grandfather, told that when Akash was around 18 months old, he began uttering the word Amalgaon. Nobody could understand what he meant by

that. Nobody knew a village named as Amalgaon. Some time later Akash told that he is from Amalgaon, his name was Kalpesh, remembers his parents who are in Amalgaon and he wants to meet them. Because nobody knew about Amalgaon they neglected his talk. Later, Akash told that he went for Ganapati immersion and drowned in the river and then came in Jalgaon. He told that there is a river Chikhali with a bridge over it, in Amalgaon and there is a Government dispensary. He told that one Mr. Shekhar removed him (dead body) from the river. The maternal grandfather and grandmother of Akash, Mr. and Mrs. Pardeshi are primary teachers at Erandole. They were listening what Akash said often. They too did not know Amalgaon. Once Akash told that Amalgaon is towards Chopada. Once the couple went to meet their friend Mr. Thakare, at his place Nandari. While going to Nandari on a motorcycle, they noticed a board showing the direction of Amalgaon. Therefore Mr. Pardeshi asked his friend whether there is a village Amalgaon and how much distant it is. Amalgaon was a village about 15 kms away from Nandari. M.Thakare was acquainted with some people in Amalgaon. As Mr. Pardeshi told Mr. Thakare what his grandchild tells about Amalgaon, Thakare got interested and took Mr. Pardeshi to Amalgaon to his friend. While going, Pardeshi noticed a river and a bridge at Amalgaon. He also noticed a Government dispensary in Amalgaon. He was convinced about the reality of the words of his grandchild. On inquiry it was confirmed that about ten years ago one boy was drowned in the river while immersing the idol of lord Ganapati. The drowned boy was Kalpesh. Mr. Pardeshi returned without meeting the father of Kalpesh, because he had no proof. Later, Mr. Choudhari Tulasidas Pitambar, the father of the dead Kalpesh, contacted Mr. Pardeshi and asked him if he can meet Akash Rajput, who is telling the memories of the dead Kalpesh. The meeting was fixed on Tuesday, the 25th

November 2003; but the Choudharis did not turn up. So Babusing Rajput said, how did they not come? Listening to that Akash suddenly said, they will come day after tomorrow. Actually, they came on a day after tomorrow on 27th Nov. 03. It exhibits capacity of premonition. Mr. Tulsidas Choudhari, the father, Mrs. Nirmala, the mother of Kalpesh, Dhanraj, the uncle, aunt, her husband Mr. N.N.Choudhari of Chalisgaon, the maternal uncle, Mr. Appa Choudhari, etc went to Rajputs home. When they arrived Akash was in school, Saint Joseph. He is at present in Junior KG. The Choudharis waited till Akash came home. On coming he stared at them and recognised that they are from Amalgaon and had come to meet him. Akash recognised the father and mother of Kalpesh. The mother of Kalpesh, Nirmala took Akash on her lap and began weeping. Akash wiped her tears and said, why are you weeping now? Now I have come. Dont weep. She asked, what is your name? Akash told, Banti. All were shocked because the nickname of Kalpesh was Banti. She asked, why did you not meet me for a long time? Akash said, Ma, I am meeting you. She admitted to me that Kalpesh was meeting her in dreams often and was telling that he has come again. Further she told that once in a dream Kalpesh asked her why did you bury me? See, I am covered all over with soil. Take me out. She told, because you died we buried you. He said, I am not dead. The father Choudhari asked Akash, your friends name was Kalpesh, is not it? He denied and said, my friend was Gourav and my name was Kalpesh. I asked Akash how he was drowned? He told that he went to immerse Ganapati. I put the idol in water, Ganapati went down, then my head, feet and hands went in the river. With action he explained the fact. I asked whether his father or mother did not accompany him for the immersion? He told that they were at home, the mother was preparing sweets, the Modakas. The parents admitted that they did

not go for immersion. Akash told me the time of death as 3 oclock. The parents confirmed it. Akash tells that it was a day of bazar when he drowned. It is true. Kalpesh died of drowning on 6th September 1992, during Ganapati festival. Birth date of Kalpesh is 16-5-1986, 14-20. Birth date of Akash is 26-6-1999, 13.55. Choudharis came well prepared to test Akash. They showed him some photographs out of which Akash recognized his brother Ganesh, sister Yogita, uncle, aunt, and grandfather of Kalpesh. Aunt asked him who she was? He told that she was an aunt of Chalisgaon, who used to take him in a rickshaw. It was true. Showing a photo the uncle of Kalpesh said, this is Baba of Patonda Akash denied firmly and told it was grandfather of Amalgaon. Akash told that there was a dispensary near his home. It was true, dispensary was of the uncle of Kalpesh, but since his death there is no dispensary. Looking at the photo of Ganesh, the elder brother of Kalpesh, Akash told that he was Ganesh Dada and now Ganesh has become an engineer. How could Akash tell that Ganesh has become an engineer? When Kalpesh died, Ganesh was a schoolboy. Ganesh became engineer much later. It shows that the Pranamaya Kosh or the Soul of Kalpesh was observing after physical death. Rajputs took Akash to Amalgaon for investigations, on 25 Dec.03. On the bus-stand of Amalgaon, Akash recognized the father of Kalpesh in the crowd. He recognized brother Ganesh and the youth Shekhar who had removed his dead body from the river. He showed the way to his home, recognized his home, showed important things from various rooms, showed the place where Ganapati was installed, told about the grinder which was used by uncle, recognized many relatives in the photos, inquired about the friend of Kalpesh, named as Gaurava and when he arrived identified him in the crowd of about 5000.

Akash told many memories of Kalpesh and the whole village got satisfied of the rebirth. Relatives and parents of Kalpesh were also convinced . On 25-12-03 the sister Yogita was not present in Amalgaon. She is a school teacher at Mumbai. She came with her husband on 26-12-03 and directly went to Rajputs home. Akasha recognized her immediately, and called her Yogita Didi. Then whole day he told her many memories of Kalpesh, by which Yogita was convinced that he remembers incidents in the life of Kalpesh. The husband of an aunt of Kalpesh took him to Chalisgaon, where Akash showed the house of the aunt and told many incidents from that house eg falling in a pit, a swing hung to a tree, hide and seek play with sister, his friend, neighbour, etc. Akash inquired about the change in the house of Gods saying some new images are placed therein. He questioned about the bottle of oil and its usual place. Akash told that once the aunt prepared Laddus, which became so hard that they had to be broken by stone. All were convinced that Akash was Kalpesh in the last life. On 20-1-04, I took Akash to Amalgaon. He showed me the road to house, the house and parents, Shekhar. He showed me where Ganapati was installed, the place of drowning, hospital, school etc. Because Akash told almost 85 memories of Kalpesh, the two families, the Rajputs of Jalagaon and the Choudharies of Amalgaon, have come very close. Actually, the Rajputs are Kshatriya while the Choudharis are Teli or Vaishya by cast.

Conclusion: The Rebirth theory is proved. Presence of Soul who can see even
after death and can contact in dream, is proved. It is proved that memories can be preserved and transferred without brain to the next life. Premonition also is proved. The child presently shows a strong memory and is reborn in seven years. Both these factors appear to contribute in memorizing the previous life.
