Kewal Parsad Bisnauthsing (10 October 1909? – 6 April 2020) was a Mauritian supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). He is the first (known) male supercentenarian claim from Mauritius.
Bisnauthsing claimed to be born in Brisee-Verdiere, Mauritius, on 10 October 1909. His family was poor, so he had to start working as a child. He got married at the age of 20. Firstly, he worked as a farmer and later as a teacher in a Protestant school. He had 6 children (2 sons and 4 daughters). His eldest son died in 2001. His wife died at the age of 75.
Even at the age of 109, he still had good memory. He was able to remember his childhood, his youth, his married life and his friends. At that time, he had 11 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. His daughter, Kreshna, was still alive at that time, at the age of 82. In 2018, he still prayed every morning before going to walk. He had always been a vegetarian, and liked to eat rice and farata. He didn’t smoke or drink alcohol. When asked about the secret of his longevity, he said he owes his long life to his strictly vegetarian diet, yoga exercises, as well as his "joie de vivre". He celebrated his claimed 110th birthday in October 2019.
Bisnauthsing died in Brisee-Verdiere, Mauritius, on 6 April 2020 at the claimed age of 110 years, 179 days. At the time of his death, he lived with his son, Rajesh (aged 69 in 2018).
