Swami Sivananda was born on August 8, 1896 in India, if you don’t believe it check out the below picture of him holding his passport. This makes Sivananda 120 years old – and the oldest living human being on earth.
Interesting fact: the average life expectancy in india is 77 years old, that means Swami must be doing something different than most people living in the region.
It’s true that people in India do indeed live longer, but that does not necessarily mean they are living healthier than the rest of the world.
Senior citizens over the age of 65 for the most part need assisted living and are cared for by their family.
