They only have about half an hour of Gandhi's birthday left in India, so I just got this under the wire.
Everybody knows that Gandhi fasted often, making him somewhat frail. People also know that he walked all over India barefoot in solidarity with the nation's poorest citizens, which gave him extremely tough feet.
Many people do not know that the Mahatma had bad breath, however. All of his treks across the Sub-Continent left him little time or opportunity to brush his teeth, it seems.
Anyway, if you put all of this together, you will see that Gandhi was...
(Wait for it.)
...a super-calloused fragile mystic who suffered halitosis.
