AGE IS A JUST A NUMBER, THIS SIXTY YEAR OLD IS TRAVELLING THE COUNTRY ON WHEELS

How do you imagine yourself when you're 60? Probably trying hard to keep up with elderly problems, resigned to a relaxing life, right? But this 60 year old has defied all the conventional standards and set a new standard for us to follow.

60 year old Sharad Sharma has been covering the country on wheels since March 2018. A former journalist, Sharad rode over 25,000 kilometres and was in Jaipur on Thursday on his India tour. He aims to cover all 29 states of India and 4 union territories. Till now, he has covered 25 states and 3 union territories (approx. 26,700 kms). By doing this, he manifests the idea of healthy living.

“We live in 3 stages — childhood and teenage years; the second is when we focus on careers and social life; the third one is post-retirement. We don’t take care of health in the second stage and subsequently face problems in the third stage,” he said. Sharad has earned reat experience by this and continues to step up and finish his target soon.
