Varanasi. A 125-year-old man in Varanasi has got the Kovid vaccine, bypassing all the hesitations and rumors about the vaccine.
Swami Sivananda reached a vaccine center in Durga Kund on Wednesday and as soon as he showed his Aadhar card, the medical staff was shocked.
His date of birth is mentioned on the Aadhar card as August 8, 1896, according to which his age is 125 years.
The medical staff was hesitant to administer the vaccine, but Shivanand had no hesitation. He insisted on getting the jab and got his first dose.
Shivanand, a resident of Kabir Nagar Colony of Bhelupur area, had reached the vaccine center alone to take the jab.
He waited for half an hour at the center and then went home after getting vaccinated.
Sivananda told reporters that the reason for his longevity was ‘simple food and regular life’.
He said, “I wake up at 3 o’clock and go for a bath in the river Ganges. Then I do yoga. I eat very simple food with little or no oil and spices. I come from a very poor family and till date, I have never had a complete diet. I eat only half of my appetite. Doing so reminds me of my humble background.”
Shivanand does all his work himself and does not take help from any family member.
He is now hoping to get a second dose of the vaccine next month.
