Enthiran electro-magnetic mode and the power to attract metals !!!

A business magnate (or industrialist) is a businessperson of great influence, importance, or standing in a particular enterprise or field of business. The word magnate derives from the Latin magnates meaning "a great man" or "great nobleman".   A magnet is a material or object that produces a magnetic field. This magnetic field is invisible but is responsible for the most notable property of a magnet: a force that pulls on other ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, and attracts or repels other magnets.

Electricity and magnetism are vital to our modern world.  Without them, perhaps, the World would still be warming with open fires and would not enjoy the many electrical and electronic devices that lighten the work everyday.  All of us know that when  we rub our hairs with a comb, and then take the comb near small pieces of paper, they are attracted by the comb.  That would be explained as charge of static electricity.   A permanent magnet is an object made from a material that is magnetized and creates its own persistent magnetic field.  Horseshoe magnets are powerful and can attract ferrous objects from a reasonable distance.

In the Rajni starrer ‘Enthiran’ (Robot) – the robot would be taken along by Sana (Aiswarya Rai) – there would be series of incidents revealing the extraordinary powers of Chitti (the robot).  In an interesting scene, disturbed by a local group blaring out too loudly and disturbing the tranquillity  of the night -  Chitti, would go and destroy the sound system, only to be confronted by local henchmen running to attack him with sickle and other instruments.  Chitti would transform to ‘magnetic mode’ – all the metal objects carried by the attackers would strongly be attracted to Chitti, the robot, would come flying and get attached to him. ………… fictional thinking of Sujatha brought on screen by Shankar. In another film, Vivek affected by electric shock of a transformer would be able to hear the inner voices of all women – which would lead him to lot of trouble, getting to know their sinister plans !

Magneto is a fictional character that appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, most often in fiction related to the X-Men.  Can you imagine a boy who suffered powerful electric shock claiming to possess  'superpowers' like X-Men's Magneto as metal objects stick to him

Daily Mail reports of a Russian schoolboy who claims to have powers like X-Men's Magneto.  A schoolboy who was almost killed when knocked out by a massive electric shock now claims the accident gave him superpowers like those of X-Men's Magneto. Nikolai Kryaglyachenko, 12, had been walking home after school when he lent briefly against a lamp post that was live from a faulty wire, and was blasted across the pavement.

Nikolai Kryaglyachenko,  now  claims metal objects stick to him like they do to X-Men character Magneto. Stories about living magnets such as Nikolai (pictured) began to appear in the middle of the 19th century.  The schoolboy says that he is a keen fan of comics and, believing that maybe he had developed some sort of super magnetic power to attract metal like Magneto, had decided to put it to the test.

He has also found himself one of the most popular boys at school with many of his classmates asking him to demonstrate his superpowers.  He is depicted as attracting lot of metal objects that cling to him.   In an earlier story in 2004, a Russian factory worker Leonid Tenkaev and his family received extensive media coverage when he appeared to obtain the ability to attract objects after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Although people who have the ability to attract metal items are commonly referred to as 'magnets', many of them can also hold plastic, glass, wood and paper items on their body.

Scientists say however that rather than people being magnetic, it is probably nothing more than unusually sticky skin.
