Did you know that a normal human being can stay without food for between 45 to 61 days?

According to available data, Mahatma Gandhi is the only man who managed to stay without any food for a total of 21 days.

Mahatma only depended on small sips of water for 21 days as he protested for the independence of India.

During the protest, Gandhi ate absolutely no food and survived despite the fact that by the time he started his hunger strike, he was lean and frail and people thought that he would die.

During his life, Mahatma Gandhi is said to have performed a total of 14 hunger strikes where he ate no food.
