In Search Of Immortality ,Hanuman Way

It is still mystery that if we can live immortal .In indian mythological description where we had heared about sanjivani booti which can cure death brought by Hanuman for saving life of Laxman.Now scientist are going to research on DNA of Sanjivani Booti:
"Indian mythology's most famous medicinal herb, Sanjivani booti, is now being studied by scientists for its most gifted quality, being able to survive even without water. The booti, that finds mention in the Ramayana for resurrecting Laxman, does not die, even without water. It just curls up and loses colour, becoming brown in the absence of moisture. It, however, regains its original green colour within hours of coming in contact with water. Unable to pinpoint what helped this four-inch fern to stay alive for the last 300 million years, scientists from the National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) have embarked on a five-year programme to actually identify the gene responsible for the plant's drought tolerance property. The five-member research team, led by senior scientist P V Khare, hopes to inject the same gene into the country's food crops to make them naturally resistant against famine, drought and snow. Found in many parts of the country, the plant is exhaustively used by tribals to treat heat stroke, jaundice and menstrual irregularities. More.
