Productive Ageing : Case study

Here is an old man by name Manickam who is 112 years old. He lives in Gengaiamman Koil Street, Manalur, Chidambaram, Kadalur  District, Tamilnadu. He lost his wife 8 years ago and has successfully conducted the marriage of three daughters who are well off, living elsewhere. This old man lives all by himself, herds sheep / goats for his lively hood and produces ropes out of waste nylon fibre and sells it his spare time. He  cooks his own meal and is totally independent even at this age. A case worth noting when we talk of Productive Ageing.  Source: Dinamalar (Tamil) 11/12/2010

I thank Sri VRV Rao bringing this to my notice.
