Ramajit Raghav has fathered his second child in two years despite being in his late nineties.
A resident of India's Kharkhoda village, the 96-year-old attributes his remarkable virility to being a non-drinker and to a long-term diet rich in fruit and dairy products. The news came on the heels of concerns by politicians over a reduction in fertility in the region as a result of excessive alcohol consumption and drug use.
"We had planned for another baby after my first son was born in 2010," said Raghav. "It's a blessing to have a baby now and I am enjoying fatherhood at this age. I didn't marry for long and followed a strict diet. I've taken milk, butter and fruits everyday since my childhood."
"Ramajit Raghav of Kharkhoda village, near Sonepat, Haryana, close to India's capital New Delhi, became a father for the first time in 2010 when he was 94."
