“I can’t sit at home and watch these TV serials or gossip endlessly. I’m 72 — I’m not dying so why should I behave like it? I love being outdoors — I wake up and go to my aerobics class, then a brisk walk and I’ve recently joined a gym…just to see what it’s like. I’ve run every marathon in Mumbai since 2004 and recently completed walking the 500 KM in 100 days challenge.”

“What advice would you want to give to a large group of people?”

“I’m outdoors and love to be fit rather than wasting my time because I love myself. Love yourself, harder everyday and watch how your life changes. All too often we focus on the people, the problems that let us down but in reality the only person who has control over your happiness is you. At 17 or 72, the only trick to feeling fulfilled and having a purpose is to love yourself, with all your flaws, all your problems and all your let downs.”
