This man is living out of his car that he parked in a forest near Adthale, Karnataka, 17 years ago.

Chandrashekar, 56, ditched life amid civilization and retreated to the jungle where his camp consists of an old car and a few sheets for shelter.

The 56-year-old bathes in a nearby river and weaves plants he finds into baskets in exchange for groceries at Adthale village.

Chandrashekar used to own a farm but could not repay a loan so a bank auctioned his land. He then moved to his sister's house but after a few days, he decided to live alone in the jungle.

He mentioned the local wildlife sometimes investigate his camp with elephants, leopards and snakes all paying visits.

The 56-year-old has received a COVID-19 vaccine after being visited by a medical worker.
