Sowmi Akka, the oldest grandmother in India, told reporters that the only secret of her long and problem free life is her healthy diet.
The 120-year-old Akka hails from Coimbatore city of India's southern Tamil Nadu state. She told reporters that she is having no health problems and it is only because of her healthy diet pattern.
"I eat all healthy food which provides me strength and good health," she said.
She also said that she is independent enough to do all kinds of domestic work like cooking, cleaning and buying vegetables and groceries from the market.
Her granddaughter, Amarawathy, said that Akka is having 250 members in the family. The eldest daughter of Akka is 95 years old and her entire family members participated in a family reunion recently.
"My grandmother's eldest daughter is 95-years-old and there are more than 250 members in her family. She gave birth to 10 children and all the members live happily. We participate in all major family functions and reunions," Amarawathy told ANI news agency.
