Grand old woman of Yangdi

"Old age, believe me, is a good and pleasant thing. It is true you are gently shouldered off the stage, but then you are given such a comfortable front stall as spectator."

The Chinese live far longer than Indians - thanks to their healthy diet and tea-drinking culture. They also work much more than Indians who are spoilt because of the lack of public transport systems.

Here's an old lady in the Yangdi village, I hear she was over 90 years old.
