75-year-old man is the World’s oldest student and his story will inspire you


Life has the power to surprise or shock you at any time. And the story shared by this 75-year-old Mumbai resident certainly proves this. In his own words he led a “happy and busy life” and was an electronic engineer at the Tata institute. As he got elder by the day, it seems like it did nothing to dampen his spirits. His wife suggested that they should learn a new language, Arabic, and they went ahead. Quite unbelievably so, he is the oldest student in his class!

“We’re 50 of us studying together and my wife and I are the ‘happening couple’ of our batch…we actually feel like college students!” he says. He shared his inspiring story on the Humans of Bombay page and it will definitely teach you a thing or two about never giving up in life.
Read his full post here.

“I’m 75 and enjoying my retired life. I’ve led a happy and busy life — for many years I was an electronic engineer at the Tata institute, after which I started my own business. I had a great family life — we’re two real brothers, married to two real sisters…so our families are very close knit. One of my son’s is in the UK, so we often travel to visit him.

My wife and I are constantly on the move. I love to read and I recently pursued photography because I’d been passionate about it since childhood. A few months ago, my wife and I thought it would be fun to learn a new language — so we signed up for Arabic lessons online and enjoyed it so much that we enrolled ourselves in a language institute in Bombay! So a few times a week, we pack our tiffins and go off to college together! On the first day, all the other students thought I was the professor, because I’m the oldest person there — but now we’re all great friends. We’re 50 of us studying together and my wife and I are the ‘happening couple’ of our batch…we actually feel like college students!

So that’s about it, it’s a simple and sweet life. The only advice I can give you, is the key to grow old well, is to keep learning and stimulating your mind. My wife and I have managed to keep our minds young — we’re constantly trying new things and experiencing different things for the first time — it’s exciting! The more you can keep feeling that excitement towards life, the younger and happier you’ll remain.”
