Description Revtu Ram, 120 years

In the cold winds of a village in North India, living out the golden years of life is a pleasure. The pure water that flows through the mountains and the crisp air keep worry and sickness at bay. Though their skin may be wrinkled and arms thin, the elderly of Himachal Pradesh look after themselves with agility that can put anyone in their youth to shame. Their sparkling eyes tell stories of many seasons gone and many that are yet to come.

This series follows the lives of those whom are at the age between 70 to 120 but with zest for life. They live in pure, untainted habitat in mountains of Himachal Pradesh. Their nurture has always come from the earth, never from a factory-made packet. The serene villages and mountains of Himachal Pradesh offer more than beautiful landscapes and holiday getaways. These places hold the key to a fulfilled life, one that we city dwellers all desire but that always seems out of reach.

We can learn truly to switch off the machines and connect with the very earth that we are made of Pure, simple, and elemental. That is key to living a long, healthy and peaceful existence.
