“I am too old for this.” if you think that this is something my parents who are in their 50s or grandma who is in her 80s says often, you are highly mistaken. This phrase is commonly used by the youngest member of the household, 24-year-old me. So you can imagine how done I am pretty early on in life. And this 94-year-old woman has now given me an immense inferiority complex and shocked the globe with her accomplishment. Bhagwani Devi Dagar has not only set an admirable fitness target for many but has also made India proud on a global scale.

Her admirable accomplishments have astounded netizens, who have taken to social media to show their support for the 94-year-old.

Dagar is from Khidka in Haryana. Vikas Dagar, her grandson, is an international para-athlete who also has received the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award. Agar is not Haryana’s sole senior athlete. Rambai, 105, of the state, enchanted the nation last month when she established a record in the 100-meter event at the National Open Masters Athletics Championship in Vadodara. Rambai said in an interview with the Times of India that her strength comes from “roti, churma, and doodh.” The woman claimed to drink 500ml of pure milk twice a day and eat bajre ki roti with some rice.
