Subject: Indian farmer becomes dad at 94

Written By: Philip Eno on 12/30/10 at 11:34 am

A 94-year-old farmer in India claims he has become the world's oldest father.

Ramajit Raghav of Kharkhoda in Haryana, northern India, says his wife Shakuntala, who is in her 50s, gave birth to a son called Karamjit, reports the Daily Mail.

The couple said their child's birth was "god's gift" and Mr Raghav, who believes the secret to eternal youth is half a kilo of butter washed down with three litres of milk every day, did not rule out having more children.

He is confident that he will be around to see his little boy grow up, adding: "I will die only if a black snake bites me and that is very unlikely."

Doctors said that the child was delivered normally a month ago and is in good health.

If the story is true, Mr Raghav will beat current record holder Nanu Ram Jogi, an Indian farmer who fathered his 21st child at the age of 90 in 2007.
