Hira Ratan Manek (12 September 1937–12 March 2022) was an Indian author, speaker, and proponent of the pseudoscience of sungazing. Manek claimed that, beginning on 18 June 1995, he lived only on water, and occasional tea, coffee, and buttermilk, though in the documentary-style film Eat the Sun (2011), he was filmed eating Indian food. Manek claimed his beliefs were somehow inspired by the Jainist Tirthankara Mahavira, as well as ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Native Americans.
