Subject's name is MS Verma, a retired government official living in Uttar Pradesh, India. Verma stated that he trained for this for 25 years with the help of a meditation guru.
Step by step he has been building his tolerance to the point where his performance was not really that difficult for him, as he explained quoted by the digital medium Newsbreak.
Staring at the star king, the man leaned back in a chair for a staggering 60 minutes in front of an audience of reporters, doctors, and even some dignitaries.
Subsequently, Verma was evaluated by a specialist clinician, who confirmed that his vision was normal. Verma's feat was recognized by an official and recorded in the Indian Book of Records.
This marathon session broke India's previous record for such a feat, made in 2019 by Pradeep Belagavi, who gazed at the sun for 10 minutes. Verma hopes that his achievement will also be congratulated by the Guinness World Records.
However, there is no recognized category in the Guinness Book of World Records for looking at the sun for an extended period of time. Doctors and experts have advised against looking at the sun, as it is extremely harmful and can cause blindness. (Juventud Rebelde) (Photo: Internet / Taken by Juventud Rebelde)
