Purkha Ram aged 42 is a resident of Bhadwa village running a shop for livelihood. He used to sleep like ours but unfortunately his sleeping time gradually goes up to 15 hours and reaches 25 hours at a go. It counts as sleeping 300 days a year. He was diagnosed with a rare disorder Axis Hypersomnia 2 years ago. His family members had to feed and bathe him while he was asleep. Purkhram said despite excessive sleeping, and treatment his body is fatigued most of the time.

For this he is being dubbed as Abhinava Kumbhakarna ( a real life Kumbhakarna), the younger brother of Ravana in Ramayana used to sleep for six months at a time. Usually people sleep a maximum of 6 to 8 hours but this Purkha Ram sleeps 25 days at a stretch due to a rare disorder . for which he also suffers a severe headache, he said. His family members hope that he will recover and live a normal life like before.
