The ninety-one-year old set a new high inspiration for people of all age groups by climbing a mountain 3,500 above sea level without any help or assistance, but for a walking stick as an occasional aid.
He tied himself to ropes, and rappelled from the top of the peak to the peak of another hill in India’s western state of Maharashtra on Sunday (February 20).
Mahajan said that he performed the adventure to instil the new age youngsters to be motivated to engage in outdoor sports and actions.
‘I don’t consider myself as old, because I believe that if one’s attitude is strong, the body would also be fit. The body should be maintained healthy since childhood. I have done this to boost the morale of the youngsters and they don’t get scared and participate in such activities,’ Narayan Krishna Mahajan said.
Mahajan said that he was not aiming to set a world record but only with an intention to encourage people to have a healthy and active lifestyle.
‘Don’t sit within the confines of your house, before the computer and television. Come out on the ground and play games like hockey, football, go for trekking, climb mountains and stay healthy. Then you will stay healthy at old age as well,’
