This year on my birthday, I will do what I have been doing. Shoot, plant a tree and feed kids. I will also then have dinner with my family. This is pretty much the ritual that I have been doing, and that is what I like to do. It is very simple. I count my blessings.
Age is just a number for Jaggu dada
I am turning 64 this year? I had no idea I thought I was turning 46. You don't start thinking about age, you just think about your experiences, you start counting the breaths you take... that is how I look at ageing. I just believe in being focused on my health. That is what has been my goal for the past many years. That is everything and that is what I keep telling everyone. Just take care of your health
